‘The Firebird’


Posted on October 24


A mythic tale of a mysterious creature. A primitive ritual revisited. A jumpin’ jazz score dripping with jewels. These are just a few of the splendors to be expected at the Sacramento Ballet’s performance of The Firebird with Rite of Spring on Oct. 24-27 at the Community Center Theater.

The program features the tantalizing Russian tale of The Firebird: the otherworldly Firebird springs to life to help Prince Ivan rescue a captive princess and establish a royal empire—all with stunning costumes and choreography. Celebrating the 100th anniversary of the iconic and riveting Rite of Spring, Co-Artistic Director Ron Cunningham retells and reimagines this sensational, sensual ballet. Then comes George Balanchine’s ribald Rubies: sizzling steps set to a red-hot jazz score. Don’t walk, run—or pirouette, if you’re so inclined—to get your tickets to this exciting program.

For tickets and more information, call (916) 808-5181 or visit sacballet.org. The Community Center Theater is located at 1301 L St.
