[+] Henderson, Lyn. "How The Flaming Angel became Prokofiev's Third Symphony." The Music Review 40 (February 1979): 49-52.

Henderson points out in detail the cut and paste approach Prokofiev used to create a symphony from his unsuccessful opera, The Flaming Angel. Entire sections of the opera are simply added one after the other to form the various movements of this orchestral piece. A chart at the end of the article lists the measure numbers of the symphony followed by the location of their sources in the opera.
