Created by Marco Goecke when the ballet Firebird by Michel Fokine completed
100 years, during the Holland Dance Festival (2010), the pas de deux for Stravinsky’s music reshapes the Russian fairy tale about Ivan Tsarevich's fight against the magician
Koschei to free Tsarevna and his companions from captivity. "His duet also
can be interpreted as the meeting between the firebird and the prince, two
creatures of different natures: a dancing bird and a human who flies”, says
the German critic Volkmar Draeger.
Marco Goecke has been a resident choreographer for the Stuttgart Ballet since 2005.
