LSO Discovery Family Concert: The Firebird

Suitable for 7- to 12-year-olds

3 June 2017 / 14:30

 Sold out

The Evil Tsar has turned twelve princesses into stone, and only Prince Ivan and his friend the Firebird can set them free! This Russian folk story about a magical bird was transformed into a ballet by Stravinsky in the early 1900s, and with the help of our presenter Rachel Leach and conductor Elim Chan we’ll be bringing the story and characters back to life with Stravinsky’s music played by the London Symphony Orchestra.

There are various exciting workshops in the Barbican foyers which take place during the morning of and just before each concert. These differ for each concert but you’ll always get the opportunity to meet LSO players and take part in musical activities. Bring your instrument if you have one!

We also provide a crèche for use during the concert for younger siblings. Those with children under the age of 7 are encouraged to use the crèche, and must book places in advance.
