Ballet Arizona Presents The Firebird and La Sylphide
Classical Dance

The past and future collide in one spectacular production for Ballet Arizona’s performances of The Firebird, a new production from Artistic Director Ib Andersen, and La Sylphide, one of the world’s oldest ballets. This juxtaposition of old and new comes to Symphony Hall Valentine’s Day weekend, February 14-17, with live music by The Phoenix Symphony. While the story of The Firebird stems from a classic Russian tale, Andersen’s rendition reimagines the story using a futuristic lens that explores love, fantasy and escapism. The Firebird unfolds in an undefined setting, where the aesthetics of warriors, monsters and aliens combine to create an otherworldly experience unlike any other performance presented by Ballet Arizona. La Sylphide, presented alongside The Firebird, is one the most iconic romantic ballets, created in the early 19th century. The tale of passion and elusive love features an alluring fairy and diabolical witch who wreak havoc on the life of a young Scotsman who gives up everything for the love of a beautiful, but unattainable, woodland sprite. Ticket prices start at $25, with discounts for seniors, college students, military, ages 18-29, and groups of 10 or more. Tickets and packages can be purchased by calling 602.381.1096 or visiting balletaz.org.
