The Love for Three Oranges is an opera composed in 1919 by Sergei Prokofiev to a libretto based on the play L'Amore delle tre melarance by Carlo Gozzi.
The play itself is based on Giambattista Basile's fairy tale "The Love for Three Oranges" (#408 in the Aarne-Thompson classification system). The absurd story is in the Commedia dell'Arte tradition, and concerns a young prince, cursed by a wicked witch and forced to voyage into distant lands in search of three oranges, each of which contains a princess. The libretto was adapted by Prokofiev and Vera Janacopoulos from Vsevolod Meyerhold's translation of Gozzi's play. The adaptation modernized some of the Commedia dell'Arte influences and also introduced a healthy dose of Surrealism. At its première, the opera was sung in French, as L'Amour des trois oranges.
The best-known piece in the opera is the "March." It is a popular orchestral selection, and was used by CBS in the series The FBI in Peace and War that was broadcast 1944-1958.
The opera was given its premiere performance on December 30, 1921 at the Chicago Opera, with the composer himself conducting. It has become Prokofiev's most widely performed opera, having entered the standard repertoire of many opera companies.
