Join us in the beautiful surroundings of The Sheepdrove Eco Centre for this special family-friendly performance of Stravinsky’s The Firebird, arranged for two pianos and narrator.

Originally a ballet and based on a Russian folk tale, The Firebird is about a magical glowing bird that Prince Ivan is searching for. The firebird is imprisoned in a castle with a beautiful princess. Ivan rescues the bird and the princess but then his own sister poisons him and the princess. Luckily, the firebird flies to the fountain of youth and with magic water brings Prince Ivan and his beloved princess back to life.

After the performance there’s the chance to stay on for lunch.
