Ballet: The Firebird
I know a great book for anyone interested in ballets or theater fashion, called Ballets Russes. This book was the inspiration for my Ballet series that I started some time ago. IF's theme this week was a great reason to revisit this series and bring The Firebird to life.
The ballet's story is of Prince Ivan capturing a mysterious Firebird. He trades the bird's freedom for a magical feather. If trouble ever finds him, he can use the feather to call the aid of the Firebird. A love story ensues between Prince Ivan and the beautiful Tsarevna...a monster gets involved...eggs get smashed...and the Firebird saves the day. Oh yeah, there's a wedding and Prince Ivan gets crowned.
