While completely opposite in setting the two works reflect one another in remarkable ways.

The Germanic fable of Hansel and Gretel follows the narrative famously related by the Brothers Grimm and amplified by the lively rustic dances and wistful melodies of the Humperdinck opera.

The impoverished but irrepressible young siblings are exiled by their cruel mother from their village to the dark and dangerous wood where they are captured by a bizarrely carnivorous witch and her feline familiars.

They are to be added, they discover, to her larder of transfixed local children transformed into gingerbread cookies.

The Firebird, inspired by the glowing bird symbolic of beauty and magical powers in ancient Russian folklore is by contrast set among 13 elegant princesses, similarly held captive, though by a terrifying ogre.

To free the princesses, a brave prince has while hunting, spared the life the life of the Firebird, in vain challenges the demonís lethal tyranny, however, it is the radiant Firebird whose feathers hold even greater power, who breaks the evil spell.
