With Richmond Symphony

Enter a world of myth and magic as Prince Ivan, the thirteen princesses, and the Firebird battle the evil sorcerer Koschei. Ma Cong’s one-act Firebird, set to Stravinsky’s triumphant score, will make its East Coast premiere on the Carpenter Theatre stage this February. Featuring powerful choreography and striking costumes, sets, and lighting, Cong’s modern take on this classic folktale is not to be missed.

The perfect complement to the mystical Firebird, George Balanchine’s Serenade will open the program. Serenade, the first ballet Balanchine choreographed in the United States, marked a turning point in the history of American ballet. With one of the most iconic and breathtaking openings of any ballet, this ensemble work showcases the technique and musicality of classical ballet at its best.

Please note, Richmond Ballet does not offer separate pricing for children. Each guest age 2 and up must have a ticket.
