Abstract:

Adaptation of a ballet first presented onstage in 2000 by the National Ballet of Canada (in co-production with the Houston Ballet and American Ballet Theatre), with sets by Santo Loquasto.

Prince Ivan enters a magical realm and while wandering in the garden, he sees and chases the Firebird. The Firebird, once caught by Ivan, begs for its life and ultimately agrees to assist Ivan in exchange for eventual freedom.
