Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Firebird is a ballet composed by Igor Stravinsky, in close collaboration with the choreographer Michel Fokine, commissioned by Serge Diaghilev for his Ballets Russes in 1910. The ballet was premiered by the Ballets Russes in Paris on 25 June 1910 conducted by Gabriel Piern . George Balanchine staged the ballet for the New York City Ballet in 1949 with Maria Tallchief as the Firebird with scenery and costumes by Marc Chagall and was performed in repertory until 1965. The ballet was restaged by Balanchine and Jerome Robbins in 1970 with elaborated scenery by Chagall and with new costumes by Karinska based on Chagall's for the 1972 Stravinsky Festival.show more
