L’Oiseau de feu is one of Igor Stravinsky's most esteemed ballets and was created for the Ballets Russes in 1910. It paved the way for the more modernist Le Sacre du printemps (The Rite of Spring) which came a few years later.
A project similar to ours, but with a focus on underprivileged adolescents, has been carried out previously by Sir Simon Rattle, then Chief Conductor at the Berlin Philharmonic, and choreographer Royston Maldoom. Their project culminated in a spectacular performance with 200 young people performing and with the award-winning documentary film Rhythm is it.
Now it’s our turn. With a combination of contemporary dance, a local choreographer and local performers, our Firebird is going to blow the roof off the opera house. Come on, join in, dance! Change your life.
Further information, including audition dates and requirements will be published on this page during Spring 2015.
