A magical telling of the traditional Russian adventure.
Prince Ivan and his brothers set off in search of the fabled Firebird, which has been stealing golden apples from the royal orchard but Ivan’s brothers soon fall by the wayside. Guided by the Wise Woman of the Wild Woods, Ivan enlists the help of Vanya the Wolf, the Horse with the Silver Mane and Princess Yelyena the Fair. Together they rescue the Firebird from Lodgoth, Tsar of the Frozen Wastes and head for home. But the adventure has only just begun…
The story is performed by two actors who bring to life a host of characters and transform everyday objects into fabulous creatures. They present all the shades and complexities of the adventure through a thrilling blend of live music, song, puppetry and physical theatre.
The Firebird has delighted audiences across the UK and in Canada, the USA, Chile, Peru and Finland!
“Parents and kids sat mesmerised. Full of music and wit and charm this is children’s theatre at its best.” – Robert Enright, CBC Winnipeg
