Prokofiev: The Love for Three Oranges, Op. 33 (complete opera)
Restored from an out-of-print Melodiya master recording.
The Love for Three Oranges, Op. 33, is a satirical opera by Sergei Prokofiev. Its French libretto was based on the Italian play L'amore delle tre melarance by Carlo Gozzi. The opera premiered at the Auditorium Theatre in Chicago, Illinois, on 30 December 1921. The original Italian and French titles actually mean The Love of the Three Oranges, which makes the word for in the English version of the title a slight corruption or mistranslation.
