Weekend Watch: F-M Children’s Ballet ‘Firebird’Saturday – Sunday
The Fargo-Moorhead Children’s Ballet is following in some big footsteps with its production of “Firebird.” Igor Stravinsky’s 100-year-old ballet follows the adventures of Prince Ivan as he encounters the mythical bird. The story is so colorful, painter Marc Chagall designed the set and costumes for famed choreographer George Balanchine’s 1949 production. The dancing starts at 7 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday at Weld Hall, Minnesota State University Moorhead. Tickets are $8 for students and $15 for adults. (701) 234-9440.
