Thanks!

Mikhail Fokine, if I'm not mistaken?

Isn't it Maurice Bejart?

^ No, because Firebird was premiered in 1910 by the Ballets Russes, 17 years before Béjart was even born.

This is taken from a book I'm using for my college ballet history class.

"Firebird was choreographed by Michel Fokine to music by Igor Stravinsky and first performed at the Theatre National de l'Opera in Paris on 25 June, 1910..."

Hopefully that answers your question. :)
