Notes & Reviews:

Glyndebourne's production of 'The Love of Three Oranges' is nothing short of a sizzling visual extravaganza. The combination of Frank Corsaro's innovative direction and the brilliant creative designs of Maurice Sendak has created an opera which mixes fantasy, nightmare, romance and satire. The whole production is alive with acrobats, jugglers, body-builders, monsters, outrageous inflatable figures, colossal puppets and special animated sequences – creating a farcical, carnival atmosphere.
