The Love for Three Oranges (opera), Op.33 (Prokofiev, Sergey)

It is very unlikely that this work is public domain in the EU, or in any country where the copyright term is life-plus-70 years. However, it is in the public domain in Canada (where IMSLP is hosted) and other countries where the term is life-plus-50 years (such as China, Japan, Korea and many others worldwide). As this work was first published before 1923 or failed to meet notice or renewal requirements to secure statutory copyright with no "restoration" under the GATT amendments, it is very likely to be public domain in the USA as well.

Please obey the copyright laws of your country. IMSLP does not assume any sort of legal responsibility or liability for the consequences of downloading files that are not in the public domain in your country.

Copyright
Misc. Notes 600 dpi. Page size is 10 x 13 inches. I apologize for the state of these parts, they are in extremely rough shape, lent from a person with a large collection of old orchestral parts (although their are a few parts that could be playable above). The state of these parts are pretty much unusable to be used in a performance. At this point, if anyone out there would be willing to typeset these parts would be greatly appreciated! Not really recommended at all to be processed and cleaned up either, just for study only. Missing Oboe 1 and the Complete Tuba Part.
