"Firebird" - Detroit Puppet Theater - Sat May 19th

Detroit Puppet Theater

25 East Grand River Ave. - Detroit


Saturday 2:00pm May 19th 2007.


"Based on a folk tale of old Russia, in which the traditional Hero, Ivan, goes in search of his true love, who has been captured by dark forces. Along the way he rescues a beautiful Firebird caught in a chain beneath a golden apple tree, meets Baba Yaga, the traditional Russian witch, who reveals to him that the Firebird he freed is none other than his true love, Vasilisa, and helps him, despite her nature, by showing him the way to the realm of the Black Dragon. His adventure comes to an end when, by using his wit rather than his strength, Ivan triumphs over the Dragon, and, united with his true love, returns to his homeland.This lush and elaborate production, with rod puppets created in the tradition of Russian folklore; the vivid and colorful scenery of the first Act contrasted with the dark and mysterious underworld of the second Act; the spellbinding music of Stravinsky's Firebird as well as folk songs of old Russia"
