Summary Adaptation of a ballet first presented onstage in 2000 by the National Ballet of Canada (in co-production with the Houston Ballet and American Ballet Theatre), with sets by Santo Loquasto. Based on a mythical Russian folktale and Michel Fokine's 1910 Parisian production, The Firebird ballet takes on a modern twist with choreography by James Kudelka. Prince Ivan enters a magical realm and while wandering in the garden, he sees and chases the Firebird. The Firebird, once caught by Ivan, begs for its life and ultimately agrees to assist Ivan in exchange for eventual freedom.
