For the young Russian composer Igor Stravinsky, the ballet The Firebird (1910) became an instant major success and a pivotal point in his career, highly acclaimed by both critics and public.

In Russian folklore, the Firebird often represents the coveted object of a difficult quest. A parallel can be made with the emerging artist and his personal quest towards becoming renowned and successful, the Firebird pecking at the golden fruit represents both the quest and its prize, arising from a potential breakthrough on the brink of success.
