Halcyon Days in Hollywood and an Unanticipated Collaboration

The chapter examines Prokofiev's celebrated collaboration with director Sergey Eisenstein. It shows, on the one hand, that a visit to Hollywood stimulated Prokofiev's imagination, priming his work with Eisenstein. On the other, the chapter argues that Eisenstein had already sorted out many questions of composer-director collaboration through previous work with the composer Gavriil Popov. Prokofiev conformed to their model, even though it was entirely unlike that of his earlier film work.
