L'Oiseau de feu (in English The Firebird, in Russian Zhar-ptitsa) is a ballet in two tableaux whose music was composed by Igor Stravinsky in 1909-1910, the plot was inspired from Russian folktales. Four different scores were written: the initial complete ballet score and three shorter suites.

The theme from Berceuse (in English Lullaby, movement which preceeds the Finale in most of the versions) was covered in Amnesia Vivace.
