“The character or ‘image’ of the Firebird appears very often in Russian folklore, and really stories from around the world. I have attempted in my adaptation to pull from many elements surrounding its mythology to create something new and preserve something old.”
— David Simpich

Nothing is as it appears to be for young Prince Ivan as he ventures forth on a quest to capture the illusive and deadly Firebird. He is aided in his harrowing journey by a flying wolf, a hospitable owl and innkeeper mouse; riddles and tests are inexplicably solved; and an adventure unfolds that carries the wayward hero to the farthest reaches of fairy tale Russia.
