"The Firebird

     A Magical Sorcerer, Katshcei, has captured a kingdom that protects the magical golden apple tree. The firebird visits the kingdom daily, to eat the golden apples, which supply magic to her fiery feathers. Evil Katshcei desires to capture the mystical Firebird and steal her magic, to make his stronger. He has casted an evil spell over the kingdom. The princesses, the guardians of the magical tree, have not been touched by the evil spell that has turned the residents of the kingdom into creatures that guard the sorcerer and his magic, that is held in a golden egg.
     Meanwhile, Prince Ivan, who is from a faraway kingdom, is hunting through a nearby forest.  He notices a mesmerizing light casted by the beautiful firebird.  He chases the bird and captures her. In return of her freedom, she gives him one of her magical feathers. If he is in trouble, the feather will call the firebird to his assistance.
As Prince Ivan continues on his journey he finds himself passing a garden with princesses caring for a beautiful tree filled with golden apples.
     The princesses tell Ivan about their kingdoms perils. Prince Ivan is convinced he is able to help the kingdom and plans to meet with the sorcerer. The Princesses warn him of Katchsies evil magical powers. Despite their warning, Ivan meets with Katshcei. The Sorcerer calls his creatures to surround Prince Ivan, and to rid of him forever. The prince quickly pulls out the Firebirds magical feather, to call for help. The magical bird swoops down on the sorcerer and his creatures, weaving a lullaby spell.  Katshcei and his creatures fall into a deep sleep, allowing Prince Ivan to search for the golden egg that holds the sorcerers magical soul.
     Prince Ivan finds and breaks the egg. Katshcei and his evil magic come to a quick end. Katshcei vanishes and the evil spell over the kingdom is broken. The kingdom holds a Celebration in honor of its freedom from Katshceis evil reign.

The 2 act story ballet is approximately 1 hour  + 15 minute intermission.
