Editor's note: An old witch forces a girl on a dangerous mission to recover a stolen egg. On the edge of a deep, dark forest there once lived a young girl called Masha. One day at the market Masha saw a tiny box of paints for sale and, because her mother had sold all the eggs she had brought, she bought the paintbox for Masha. Masha knew the forest around her home well, but one day she ventured farther than usual and found herself deep in the heart of the forest where the old trees grew and the air was dark and still.

Midway through her season, Ballet Theatre of Maryland artistic director Dianna Cuatto presented an ambitious, innovative program offering two seldom-produced one-act ballets. Striking in originality, "Firebird" displayed Cuatto's choreographic artistry in all its fiery intensity. "The Scarlet Letter" showed her profound insight into a literary classic. Introducing three BTM performances last weekend, Cuatto shared her fondness for both works and their significance in her career as a dancer and choreographer.

Although the Ballet Theatre of Maryland was still rehearsing its production of Igor Stravinsky's The Firebird, I was struck last week by how finished the production seemed. The dancers at rehearsals fit their roles so well that they had already created almost fully faceted characterizations. Despite the generally high quality of performances, the company has consistently struggled to attract the larger audiences it deserves. Perhaps this ballet -- a blazing "Firebird" that soars -- will prove a turning point.

Public art of every description fills Baltimore's Mount Royal Cultural District each summer during the annual Artscape festival and then typically disappears soon after it's over. But by autumn this year, the cultural district will gain at least one major work of art permanently. Firebird is a 50-foot-tall metal sculpture by Baltimore artist Rodney Carroll that will be installed this fall on a plaza at the southeast corner of Howard Street and Park Avenue, opposite the entrance to the Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall.

The Peabody Symphony Orchestra filled the stage of Meyerhoff Hall on Monday night for a remarkable program that delved into folklore and mythology - and some of the most brilliant, evocative, involving music in the repertoire. The chance to hear the complete Firebird ballet by Stravinsky or the complete third act of Wagner's Die Walkure doesn't come around very often. But rarity was just part of what the occasion had going for it. A lot of the time, the ensemble's accomplished, expressive playing belied its student status; the singers heading the Wagner cast provided the kind of star power associated with top opera houses; and the conducting of Teri Hajime Murai proved consistently inspired.

Hector Berlioz, the feverish Romantic who lived riotously in his own imagination, was fond of comments like, "Five hundred thousand curses on musicians who do not count their bars." Igor Stravinsky, the cunning revolutionary, gave not a nickel to critics: "Their attitude certainly can not make me deviate from my path."Dramatic early works by these two influential and self-conscious composers are played invitingly in the latest compact discs recorded by the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra on the Telarc label.
