Oranges Title Love for three oranges web

Music by Sergei Prokofiev
Based on the play by Carlo Gozzi

Send in the clowns! Part fairy tale, part vaudeville, and part circus, this dazzling phantasmagoria of an opera will delight your ears and eyes with spectacle and high spirits. A prince is condemned to wander the earth in search of three oranges, the contents of which will make you look twice at your orange juice in the morning. We last produced this opera 14 years ago and it is one of our most requested revivals.
