Igor Stravinsky’s magical ballet score The Firebird weaves the tale of a Prince, a powerful bird, and their battle to defeat an evil sorcerer and release 13 captive sisters. But just how did these brave sisters end up under King Katschei’s spell in the first place? Composer Paul Rissmann and librettist Hazel Gould’s fantastic new prequel to the traditional story may have the answer. Join the LPO for some compelling storytelling and fantastic new participatory music, plus extracts from Stravinsky’s original score.
