 “Return of the Firebird” presents dramatic recreations of the original Ballets Russes productions of The Firebird, Petrushka and Scheherazade, first seen in Paris almost a century ago.  Russian ballet superstar Andris Liepa heads an all-star cast and directs these magical films, shot in Russia’s famous Mosfilm studios.  Music by Igor Stravinsky and Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov. 

Attendees at this event will have the opportunity to enter a drawing to win two tickets to the Ballet Austin Season Opener of The Firebird and Swan Lake (Act II).  The drawing will be held after the final film screening on September 24.  Thanks to Ballet Austin for the generous donation!
