Firebird from Stravinsky Fairy Tales by Alexei Ratmansky | Dutch National Ballet

This is Firebird. The legend of the firebird was the inspiration for Stravinsky’s L’Oiseau de feu from 1910. It tells the story of the tsar’s son Ivan, who captures a firebird in a magical garden. When she manages to escape, Ivan gets one of her feathers, which will save him in times of need. With beautiful music by Igor Stravinsky and choreographed by the amazing Alexei Ratmansky. Part of the programme Stravinsky Fairy Tales.
