Immerse yourself in the classic dance spectacle story of The Firebird in a special adapted production by Charlottesville Ballet featuring 20 professional local dancers and over 50 area students. Originally choreographed and set to music by Igor Stravinsky more than a century ago, this ballet follows the romance of Prince Ivan and Princess Katerina, brought together by a magical bird after Katerina and her friends have been trapped in the forest by the evil sorcerer Koschei. Kids can head on stage after the performance for crafts, dance lessons and photo ops with the ballerinas.

Saturday 4/25. $15-25, 2pm and 5pm. V. Earl Dickinson Building at PVCC, 501 College Dr. 973-2555.
