With the grace and beauty of shadow puppetry performed to the 1919 Firebird Suite composed by Igor Stravinsky, Madcap tells the story of the kind Prince Ivan, who captures the Firebird. See two ancient and timeless arts combined - puppetry and storytelling. Using shadow puppetry, a style developed in China over 2,000 years ago, Madcap portrays one of the oldest known stories in the annals of fables; the legend of the Firebird, beloved in Russian literature for centuries and in ancient Egypt as the legend of the Phoenix.
