Firebird opens with Purcell’s famous aria, When I am Laid in Earth, as a woman contemplates her final rest. The music of Björk accompanies her eccentric determination to take the occasion of her burial into her own hands, building to the triumphant climax of Stravinsky’s famous ballet Firebird. The music weaves together dance and digital interactivity to dazzling effect.
