The Firebird

I. Stravinsky


Ballet premieres in Perm are always a must-see. In 2016 the Perm ballet was named best company ― and its head Alexey Miroshnichenko, as best ballet master ― by the magazine Dance Europe. Perm ballet stands for magnificent technique, artistry and unique repertoire.

The 145th season will end with a special treat that will delight all dance connoisseurs: three one-act ballets, choreographed to the music of Igor Stravinsky by three leading Russian choreographers, performed by the Perm ballet company. Viacheslav Samodurov will choreograph Le baiser de la fée (The Fairy's Kiss), Vladimir Varnava — Petrushka, and Alexey Miroshnichenko — The Firebird. The premiere will be the closing event of the 2017 International Diaghilev Festival.

The director of The Firebird, principal ballet master of the Perm Ballet Alexey Miroshnichenko, promises to take audiences through the styles of the main choreographers of the XX-XXI centuries in reverse chronological order ― from the present back to Mikhail Fokine, the creator of the first choreographed version of The Firebird in 1910. Supporting this idea of an anthology will be the set design and costumes by Alyona Pikalova and Tatiana Noginova, which are based on the iconic artistic symbols of the eras in which the choreographers worked.
