The Firebird/A Month in the Country/Symphony in C

The flash of a firebird, a family sent into a spin and a classical ballet explosion. Michel Fokine's The Firebird with Igor Stravinsky's music is a ground-breaking classic of the early 20th-century that draws on the story, sound and look of Russian folk art. Ivan Turgenev's play A Month in the Country inspired Frederick Ashton's study of the emotional chaos a young tutor brings to household routine. Ashton created dazzling and fast footwork alongside expressive character portraits to music by Fryderyk Chopin. Symphony in C is pure dance with Russian-born George Balanchine's brilliant edge. His choreography draws from the classical Imperial ballet of his youth and matches it to the music of Georges Bizet's exuberant and inventive symphony.
