"Stravinsky's music and Balanchine's ballet are the wellspring that inspired the poetry and illustration. Based on the Russian legend of a hunter-prince who stumbles into the eerie garden of an evil monster, there falls in love with a beautiful princess held captive by the ogre, and rescues her with a supernatural power granted him by a magical bird of fire. From George Balanchine's "New Complete Stories of the Great Ballets", 1967." Colophon
