Firebird by Béjart, Sky Arts


Recommended Posts

Firebird, was broadcast on Sky Arts (immediately after 422) with POB dancing  the Béjart choreography.  I have always adored the original Fokine choreography but I also love this version.  It is some years since I last saw it but it is still incredibly moving.  It starts with a group freedom fighters/revolutionaries and the Firebird represents hope/justice/righteousness - choose your own interpretation.  If you haven't seen it, look out for it in the schedules, it is bound to be repeated.

Is this the one Alvin Ailey or Dance Theatre of Harlem, can't remember which, brought to Sadler's Wells some years ago?  It sounds distinctly familiar.
