The Love for Three Oranges

The Love for Three Oranges: By Sergei Prokofiev
RIGA  •  Latvian National Opera (Main Hall)  •  Ongoing

Sergei Prokofiev: The Love for Three Oranges
Opera in a prologue and four acts (1921)

The King of Clubs is in despair – his son is a hypochondriac. Though it turns out his son could be cured by laughter, not everyone at court is eager to see the prince well again... Those who would wish harm on the heir to the throne poison him with tragic prose and old, banal poems; the presence of wizards, devils and witches only adds to the intrigue. However, good prevails in this phantasmagorical chaos.
