Happy Monday! Welcome to FIREBIRD WEEK on IPR's Kids Commute - classical music for kids!
This week, we're listening to Igor Stravinsky's fairy tale ballet that combines two myths. The first is of the terrible Koschei the Deathless, an (almost) indestructible sorcerer. The second myth is of the magical Firebird - a bird with flames for feathers!
Today, Part One, in which we join Prince Ivan and discover Koschei's Enchanted Garden and meet the Firebird herself.
