The firebird and other stories (being(s) in love book 5) - The Firebird and Other Stories (Beings in Love, 5) by R.



The Firebird ( French : L'Oiseau de feu ; Russian : Жар-птица , translit.   Zhar-ptitsa ) is a ballet and orchestral concert work by the Russian composer Igor Stravinsky . It was written for the 1910 Paris season of Sergei Diaghilev 's Ballets Russes company; the original choreography was by Michel Fokine , with a scenario by Alexandre Benois and Fokine based on the Russian fairy tales of the Firebird and the blessing and curse it possesses for its owner. When first performed at the Opéra de Paris on 25 June 1910, the work was an instant success with both audience and critics.

The ballet has historic significance not only as Stravinsky's breakthrough piece, but also as the beginning of the collaboration between Diaghilev and Stravinsky that would also produce the acclaimed ballets Petrushka (1911) and The Rite of Spring (1913).

The ballet was the first of Sergei Diaghilev's Ballets Russes productions to have an all-original score composed for it. Alexandre Benois wrote in 1910 that he had two years earlier suggested to Diaghilev the production of a Russian nationalist ballet, [7] an idea all the more attractive given both the newly awakened French passion for Russian dance and also the ruinously expensive costs of staging opera. The inspiration of mixing the mythical Firebird with the unrelated Russian tale of Koschei the Deathless possibly came from a popular child's verse by Yakov Polonsky , "A Winter's Journey" ( Zimniy put , 1844), which includes the lines:
