»A musical theatre of wonders!« [Berliner Morgenpost] The absurd fairytale of a melancholy prince who falls in love with three oranges returns to the schedule – in Andreas Homoki’s colourful production. It is a declaration of love to the theatre and its transformational power. »This Prokofiev is staged with such infectious enthusiasm that the audience are beside themselves with joy« [Opernwelt] – and have been for the last 20 years!
