The Firebird & La Sylphide

May 20 @ 9:07 am MST

February 14 – 17, 2019
with The Phoenix Symphony at Symphony Hall

An evening of ballet presented as never before, allow Ballet Arizona to entice you into alternate realities with these two seductive ballets.

The Firebird

Choreography by Ib Andersen
Music by Igor Stravinsky

A world premiere by Ballet Arizona’s Artistic Director Ib Andersen featuring his renowned choreography and artistic vision for costumes and sets. This ballet tells the classic story based on a Russian fairytale, with a singularly original twist. Using the lens of today, The Firebird explores themes of love, fantasy, and escapism, making it perfectly in tune with Stravinsky’s modern score.

Produced by Barbara and Donald Ottosen

La Sylphide

Choreography by August Bournonville, staged by Ib Andersen
Music by Severin Løvenskiold

The most iconic of the romantic ballets, this tale of passion and elusive love features an alluring fairy and a diabolical witch who wreak havoc on the life of a young Scotsman, James, who gives up everything for the love of a beautiful, but unattainable woodland sprite.
