Firebird

April 7 – 15, 2023 | Newmark Theatre

After 15 years, OBT is thrilled to return its highly acclaimed commission of Yuri Possokhov’s Firebird to the stage. Based on the treasured Russian folktale of young Prince Ivan, his two loves, and a sorcerer whose evil spell must be undone, Possokhov’s Firebird is visually and musically arresting — a delight for audiences of all ages. This program also features the OBT premiere of Stanton Welch’s critically acclaimed Indigo. Striking and powerful, Indigo explores the relationships of four couples as they fall in love, break-up, and reunite, all expressed through Welch’s high-octane brand of dance. Last but certainly not least, we proudly present a world premiere from former New York City Ballet star and Paul Taylor Company resident choreographer, Lauren Lovette. Hailed by The New York Times for her “desire to turn ballet inside out” Lovette’s work has been presented by major national companies including American Ballet Theatre and New York City Ballet.
