Experience the magic, monsters and mayhem in this Russian fairy tale favorite. Get ready for Cyclops, the monster with one eye topped with a unibrow, abetted by cohorts Fishface and Goblin. Prince Igor imperiled and his brothers turned to stone. Maidens imprisioned. The Firebird, a female superhero in a tutu, to the rescue. But there’s one more feat of derring-do—destroy the soul of the evil sorcerer Kostchei.
