Description Take a prince who cannot laugh, a witch who curses him with a fatal passion for not one but three oranges, a double-dealing Prime Minister, a devil with magic bellows, a giant rat and a cook with a lethal ladle; place the whole thing in a fairy-tale kingdom, set it to Pokofiev's sly, scintillating music and you have one of opera's most surreal comic masterpieces.
