L'oiseau de feu, literally "bird of fire" in French, tells the Russian folk tale of a glowing bird that both entrances and brings misfortune to its captor, Prince Ivan. The Firebird, a composition created for France's Ballets Russes in the early 1900s by Igor Stravinsky, was one of his first commissioned works, and helped jump-start an illustrious career. The Colorado Springs Philharmonic will present Stravinsky's Firebird Suite, as well as excerpts from Debussy's Nocturnes and other works at 2:30 p.m. today (after last night's 8 o'clock show) at the Pikes Peak Center (190 S. Cascade Ave., csphilharmonic.org) under the direction of conductor and music director Josep Caballé-Domenech. Tickets run $19 to $59. — Celine Wright
