Hawkins Classical and Contemporary Ballet Company Presents:
The Enchanted Forest and Firebird

Journey through a moonlit forest, dense with trees and underbrush, where woodland creatures and spirits wistfully dance and play between shafts of light.   Hear the mysterious sounds of wildwood life and catch a glimpse of Little Red Riding Hood and other storybook characters in the Enchanted Forest.    Wander further still and you will find the garden of the Sorceress Kastcha, her monster attendants, the beautiful Princess Tsarevna, twelve lovely maidens, a handsome Prince and the mysterious Firebird.
