In Cantonese with NO Chinese and English surtitles

The Firebird is a famous folktale from Russia, on a journey through the magical forest, Prince Ivan has to find the beautiful Princess Zerena with the help of Grey Wolf, who can transform himself into many disguises. In the story, we meet Prince Ivan and his two silly brothers, as well as Koschei the evil Wizard and many other colourful characters, including the Firebird herself!

The Firebird is not only one of the famous modern ballets by Stravinsky but also the most important one. An enchanting story with action-packed adventures to delight the whole family! They performed their first show since about 3 years ago, they have toured with great success in many British theatres and festivals, including the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and Malta etc.


"…we are treated to humorous animals and precisely timed and special effects which make the audience of children and adults gasp in wonder."     -Three Weeks, England

"Through a spectacular blend of traditional puppetry and state-of-the-art animation, the Purves Puppets are unique in the world of storytelling."     -Edinburgh Festival 2011


About the Arts Group
The International Purves Puppets(UK) have now been firmly established as a leading professional company for 40 years, in which time they have continually toured the world, while also performing in their own award winning permanent theatre - the first and only fully working puppet theatre of its kind in Scotland.

The company are household names throughout the U.K., having been welcomed in towns and cities up and down the country - as well as making numerous T.V. appearances, but even more impressive is the number of countries they have been invited to perform in: France, Italy, Spain, Poland, Germany, Taiwan, Syria, Singapore, Jordan and Hong Kong

Their performances are given by large scale puppets (designed specifically for full-size theatres) and manipulated in Bunraku style by professional puppeteers. Most productions are performed in 'Black Light', where both the puppets and scenery glow like magic, while the operators seem to disappear among a kaleidoscope of fluorescent colours.

Although designed specifically for younger audiences, the performances are appreciated, not only by children, but adults as well.

"Adults definitely enjoy our shows. Moreover, they appreciate the amount of work and care that has been put into our performances, specifically in the costumes, scenery and script". Said by Ian Purves, Director.
