Synopsis

Kent Nagano conducts the Lyon Opera orchestra and chorus in this 1989 production of Prokofiev's opera in four acts. The Prince suffers from many ailments, and it is announced that only laughter can cure his ills. The King orders his jester, Truffaldino, to lay on a series of lavish entertainments, but prime minister Leandro, his protector Fata Morgana and the Princess all plot to prevent the Prince's recovery. When Fata Morgana collides with Truffaldino, the Prince bursts out laughing and is cured, but Fata Morgana places a curse upon him.
