Welcome to Day Two of FIREBIRD WEEK on IPR's Kids Commute!

This week, we're listening to Igor Stravinsky's fairy tale ballet that combines two myths: Koschei the Deathless and the mythical Firebird.

Today, in Part Two, we meet thirteen princesses who are also Koschei's captives. Prince Ivan watches them play a game with golden apples (check out the video after the jump!).
