In Slavic folklore, the Firebird (Russian: жар-пти́ца, zhar-ptitsa, literally ember bird from птица bird Old Russian жар ember) is a magical glowing bird from a faraway land, which is both a blessing and a bringer of doom to its captor.
The Firebird tales follow the classical scheme of fairy tale, with the feather serving as a premonition of a hard journey, with magical helpers met on the way who help in travel and capture of the Bird, and returning from the faraway land with the prize. The most popular version is found in the tale of Ivan Tsarevich and the Grey Wolf.
The story of the Firebird quest has inspired literary works, including "The Little Humpback Horse" by Pyotr Yershov. Composer Igor Stravinsky achieved early success with a large-
scale ballet score called The Firebird.
