MCB Artistic Director Lourdes Lopez as the Firebird
In 1985 Lourdes Lopez made her debut in the title role of the New York City Ballet’s Firebird at the New York State Theater.
“Firebird is a ballet that I have grown up around, and I have always loved it. At 14, I was one of the supers, later I was a lead monster, then a princess, and finally the Firebird.” – MCB Artistic Director Lourdes Lopez
