Southwest Virginia Ballet: The Firebird
 
4/4/19 - 7 PM
Martinsville HS Auditorium
351 Commonwealth Blvd



The Firebird is a story full of magic and love based on a Russian folk tale. Igor Stravinsky's brilliant score will be performed by the young musicians in the Roanoke Youth Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of James Glazebrook. Southwest Virginia Ballet will revive the stunning choreography of internationally known choreographer Vicente Nebrada.

Nebrada's Firebird is set in the tropics with a host of fantastic creatures aiding the Firebird and Prince in their quest to rescue the beautiful princess from an evil Magician and his Companion. Stunning costumes by the internationally recognized costume designer, Christina Giannini, include lizard like monsters, dragonflies and a spectacular Firebird. This collaboration between the best young dance and musical performers in the Roanoke Valley is a must see for the entire family.
