Among those in the audience was the impresario Sergei Diaghilev, who at that time was planning to introduce Russian music and art to western audiences.

Alexandre Benois wrote in that he had two years earlier suggested to Diaghilev the production of a Russian nationalist ballet,  an idea all the more attractive given both the newly awakened French passion for Russian dance and also the ruinously expensive costs of staging opera. The inspiration of Tomita The Firebird the mythical Firebird with the unrelated Russian tale of Koschei the Deathless possibly came from a popular child's verse by Yakov Polonsky"A Winter's Journey" Zimniy put, which includes the lines:.
And in my dreams I see myself on a wolf's back Riding along a forest path To do battle with a sorcerer-tsar Koschei In that land where a princess sits under lock and key, Pining behind massive walls. There gardens surround a palace all of glass; There Firebirds sing by night And peck at golden fruit. Benois collaborated with the choreographer Michel Fokine, drawing from several books of Russian fairy tales including the collection of Alexander Afanasyevto concoct a story involving the Firebird and the evil magician Koschei.
Diaghilev approached the Russian composer Anatoly Lyadov — to write the music. For Stravinsky, it was a major breakthrough both with the public and with the critics, Michel-Dimitri Calvocoressi in particular hailing Stravinsky as the legitimate heir to The Mighty Handful. Stravinsky used several ideas from works by Rimsky-Korsakov in his score. Koschei's "Infernal Dance" borrows the highly chromatic scale Rimsky-Korsakov created for the character Chernobog in his opera Mlada.
Russian composer Sergei Rachmaninoff was a fan of the work. Upon listening to the ending, his friend Sergei Bertensson recalled Tomita The Firebird composer saying: "Great God!

Prince Ivan then meets thirteen princesses who are under the spell of Koschei and falls in love with one of them. The next day, Ivan confronts the magician and eventually they begin quarrelling. When Koschei sends his minions after Ivan, he summons the Firebird. She intervenes, bewitching the monsters and making them dance an elaborate, energetic dance the "Infernal Dance".
The creatures and Koschei then fall into a deep sleep. While they sleep, the Tomita The Firebird directs Ivan to a tree stump where the casket with the egg containing Koschei's soul is hidden.
