Known as the Cossack of the future generation, Sergej Prokofiev had the intention of trying again to conquer the American theatres with his gifts as an aggressive and virtuoso pianist. Yet if the ability of the executor fascinated the public, his composition qualities did not find the favour of overseas audiences, afraid of a possible contagion of ‘anarchic-Bolshevik’ subversion. The director of the Chicago opera, the Italian Cleofonte Campanini, was the one who had the courage to commission the young Prokofiev for a new opera which added to the masks (and to the parodies of the Gozzi’s Commedia Dell’Arte) the choices of the playwright and the avant-garde artist Vsevolod Mejerchol'd. With his mix of fairy tale, satire and comedy, ‘L’amore delle tre melarance’ perfectly represents the theatrical direction of Prokofiev, addressed “against the naturalism and the routine of the great ‘epigoni’ of the pre-revolutionary theatre”. The smirk and the parody of the 19th century melodramatic conventions are the leitmotiv of this opera in a boundless whirlwind of musical inventions, where the orchestra plays a fundamental role.
