They say: "Tyranny, Subjugation, Addiction and Hope are some of the themes explored by Jennifer Porter's contemporary take on the neo classical ballet, 'Firebird.' The story is of Ivan, a man who innocently stumbles into a world of evil and corruption that is ruled by a cruel leader through trickery and intimidation. In the struggle to navigate his way through this ugly place, Ivan's fate allows an encounter with the 'Firebird,' a beautiful, magical creature that he is drawn first to pursue and capture, but then set free, unaware that she would later rescue him from having become part of the darkness and evil of his environment.
There will also be two world premieres by Jennifer Porter and Laura Rodriguez. Orchestra Bellevue will be conducted by Philip Tschopp."
