Yekaterinburg Opera to produce Prokofiev's "Love for Three Oranges"
The opera is in four acts and is a satirical opera based on the Italian play "L'amore delle tre melarance" by Carlo Gozzi.
The opera was the result of a commission during Prokofiev's first visit to the U.S. in 1918, and it premiered in 1921 at the Auditorium Theatre in Chicago, Illinois.
The story tells the tale of a prince who falls ill after reading too much tragic poetry. The king attempts to cure the son's illness with laughter. The prince finally laughs after witnessing a witch accidentally fall down.
The witch then curses the prince, saying that he will be obsessed by a "love for three oranges." The prince and his jester then go on a journey to find the oranges, which are guarded by a giant.
