Join the acclaimed New York Theatre Ballet for an enchanting performance of the beloved Once Upon a Ballet series. Perfect for audiences aged 3 and up, this one-hour program brings to life the timeless tale of The Firebird, featuring delightful choreography by Richard Holden alongside Merce Cunningham’s playful Scramble. Don't miss this magical experience that will captivate audiences of all ages.

Choreographed by Richard Holden after Michel Fokine, NYTB’s family-friendly version of The Firebird tells the story of the adventurous Prince Ivan and a magical bird. Set to a score by Igor Stravinsky, The Firebird features costumes by Sylvia Taalsohn Nolan and scenery by Gillian Bradshaw-Smith.

A work for eight dancers, Merce Cunningham’s 1967 masterwork Scramble is set to music by Toshi Ichiyanagi (Activities for Orchestra) and features original costume design by Frank Stella, reconstructed by Carmella Lauer. Scramble is staged for NYTB by Jennifer Goggans
