Purves Puppets Ultraviolet Spectacular
The Firebird – Music by Stravinsky
One of the world’s most famous puppet companies, Purves Puppets have performed in France, Italy, Spain, Germany, Hong Kong, Poland, Singapore and are regulars at the Edinburgh Festival. Large scale puppets and scenery glow like magic, the puppeteers disappearing into a kaleidoscope of colours.
Based on a Russian folk tale, the Firebird is an enchanting story, with action-packed adventures, of Prince Ivan’s journey through the magical forest to find his princess, with the help of Grey Wolf, encountering Koschei, the evil magician, on the way. An uplifting show for all who are young at heart!
