Yen Han Ballet Productions is delighted to present “The Firebird” together with the Tonhalle Orchester in its Family Concert program.

Yen Han Ballet Productions will perform a unique version of “The Firebird” danced by Yen Han & Filipe Portugal (former soloists of Zurich Opera Ballet Company), and the professional program of the dance school. This performance, specially tailored for families, is directed by Yi-Chen Lin, with Sara Taubman-Hildebrand as storyteller, accompanied by the Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich.

The Firebird is a ballet and orchestral concert work by Igor Stravinsky based on a famous Russian fairy tale. Who can save the captive princess? The children are actively involved in the story - they help to free the beautiful Zarewna and experience the magic of the glowing feathers. All the princesses in the hall are actively invited to dance. Light effects and artificial fire bowls make the family concert an experience for the whole family.

The performance will be given again at 14:15 the same day.

Masks mandatory.
