Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Firebird (French: L'oiseau de feu) is a 1910 ballet created by the composer Igor Stravinsky and choreographer Michel Fokine. The ballet is based on Russian folk tales of the magical glowing bird of the same name that is both a blessing and a curse to its captor. The ballet has historic significance not only as Stravinsky's breakthrough piece - "Mark him well," said Diaghilev to Tamara Karsavina, who was dancing the title role: "He is a man on the eve of celebrity..." - but also as the beginning of the collaboration between Diaghilev and Stravinsky that would also produce Petrushka and The Rite of Spring.show more
