STRAVINSKYPetrushka
STRAVINSKYThe Firebird

Ballet Quad Cities and Orchestra Iowa complete the grand triptych of Stravinsky’s greatest ballets in a nationally acclaimed project that began two seasons ago with an original production of the Rite of Spring. Petrushka is the story of a puppet come to life, not unlike Pinocchio, who must confront unexpected human emotions of love and jealousy. The Firebird is an ancient Russian fable where the magic of the firebird helps Prince Ivan break the spell of the evil Kashchei and win the heart of his beloved. Nowhere in the Midwest have these three important ballets been performed in such close proximity, making this rare achievement unique to our area.
