Fredrik Benke Rydman’s version of Stravinsky’s classic is a raving Firebird of irresistible energy. In 2015, GöteborgsOperans Danskompani, four of Sweden’s top break-dancers and non-professionals of all ages – all in all about 100 participants – formed a performance that made both audience and critics burst out of joy. All performances were sold out even before the world premiere, and the demand for more shows was enormous. 

The Göteborg Opera Orchestra plays Stravinsky’s powerful music conducted by Henrik Schaefer.
