The Blue Bird (L'Oiseau bleu) is a 1908 play by Maurice Maeterlinck. It premiered on 30 September 1908 at Constantin Stanislavski's Moscow Art Theatre and has been turned into several films and a TV series. The French composer Albert Wolff (1884-1970) wrote an opera (first performed at the N.Y. Metropolitan in 1919) based on Maeterlinck's original play.

The story is about a girl called Mytyl and her brother Tyltyl seeking happiness, represented by The Blue Bird of Happiness, aided by the good fairy Bérylune.

Maeterlinck also wrote a relatively little known sequel to L'Oiseau bleu, entitled The Blue Bird and the Betrothal
