Stravinsky’s Firebird has it all: a prince, 13 princesses, the Firebird’s magic feather, and an evil ogre and his hellish minions! You’ll feel the music’s vibrant colors and rich harmonies, glittering and pulsing with fantastic effects, leading to the gossamer Lullaby and a shimmering Finale proclaiming a happily-ever-after.
