WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

With fantastic costumes designed by Jorge Gallardo and Stravinsky's brilliant score, Firebird returns by popular demand. The ballet tells the tale of a magical firebird that helps a heroic prince rescue a beautiful princess from Katscheii, a sinister force of evil. Stravinsky's masterpiece includes the Firebird's exuberant dance followed by variations based on Russian folksongs, the beautiful Round of the Princesses, Katscheii's rhythmic dance and a romantic lullaby. Gorgeous backdrops by designer Elena Bondarenko along with magical special effects fulfill this wonderful production with choreography of Vladimir Issaev.
