This bewitching tale of the firebird tells of Prince Ivan, brave beyond all reckoning, and a giant bird who burns in all kinds of red and gold colours, as though the sun itself were imbedded in its feathers. This is The Firebird, one of the most vivid orchestral adventures ever written. 

For this enthralling performance, Halldóra Geirharðsdóttir tells the audience the story of the firebird in all its glory, the secrets of the forest, the magic egg, and the golden apples. Ari Yates's illustrations, depicting the firebird dancing and gliding among the treetops of the magical forest, are projected onto a screen during the performance.

Bird-lovers of all ages are invited to a creative mask-making session before the concert in Hörpuhorn.
