When the Hult Center opened in 1982, the first ballet performed on its stage was Eugene Ballet’s The Firebird. In homage to that occasion and in celebration of Eugene Ballet’s 40 years of creating incredible dance, Suzanne Haag presents an all new vision of this iconic ballet. Witness life being raised from the ashes with the power of Stravinsky’s score in this futuristic retelling of the classic fairytale.
The April program opens with Gerald Arpino’s Italian Suite. Selected by the Gerald Arpino Foundation, Eugene Ballet is honored to celebrate the lives of both Gerald Arpino and Robert Joffrey with a work that “is supremely romantic, filled with virtuoso bits. Gorgeous women in pink swoop into the arms of their cavaliers….” -Richard Christiansen, Chicago Tribune
“My Vision for The Firebird is to keep the myth alive in my retelling while using contemporary ballet movement to portray a world in need of saving by a group of powerful people.” -Suzanne Haag, Choreographer
