Stravinsky's ballet 'The Firebird' Lands in Ithaca

The Ithaca Ballet is presenting Igor Stravinsky’s ballet ‘The Firebird’. It’s a well-known score, but the ballet is not performed often, because of the demanding role of Prince Ivan and the stage magic called for in the scenario.  Choreographer Lavinia Reid has solved the latter issue with the use of black light, and the leading man, Peter Doll, is looking forward to to his challenging role. http://wskg.org/audio/firebirdmix.mp3
