THE FIRE BIRD
The ancient Russian folktale, first told in the mists of time, tells of a hapless Prince's quest to seek out a mischievous Bird of Fire responsible for the theft of Golden Apples from the Royal Orchard.
This sparkling new production bursts into action in a riot of colour and comedy. Over a score of Bunraku and Rod puppets unfold the tale on four stage areas. The zany circus antics are accentuated by the brilliant costumes and exciting set designs.
Now the ninth production by Britain's leading team of puppetmasters, 'THE FIREBIRD' is a culmination of two years' research and work. The result is a show which will delight all ages. The thrills of the 'Big Top' mingle with the traditional storyline to give an imaginative new interpretation of a favourite classic.
