The Firebird

Inspired by a fairytale from Russian folklore, this ballet hits all the classic notes—a dashing prince captures the titular magical firebird, but releases it in exchange for help against a terrible evil, the demon Kastchei. The piece’s enchanting narrative, marked by flitting woodwinds and rumbling brass, captured the attention of the world upon its 1910 debut, and rocketed Igor Stravinsky to international stardom.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Interpreting Shakespeare’s tale of quarreling lovers and mischievous fairies, the ballet sends audiences on a romp rife with comic misunderstandings and imps named after hockey equipment. Puck, the servant to the king of the fairies, sets off a chain reaction when his love potion causes the fairy queen to fall in love with a weaver-turned-donkey. Then, human lovers fall into the mix, and a night of confusion unfolds in a magical forest.

The ballet is set to George Balanchine’s choreography and Felix Mendelssohn’s seminal overture and incidental music. The score ranges from the grand organ swells and trumpet fanfares of the Wedding March to a rustic peasant dance built around a string refrain that imitates the sound of a braying donkey, working with the vibrant motions to keep even littler family members entertained.
