Gozzi is best known today as the writer of the plays that inspired the Puccini and Prokofiev operas Turandot and The Love of Three Oranges. His theatrical fables turn ancient myths and legends into colorful theatrical tales with morals, borrowing elements from different cultures to create new, fabulist worlds. Suitable for all ages.
