‘Le Corsaire’ is a ballet in three acts, loosely based on the poem ‘The Corsair’ by Lord Byron, to the music of Adolphe Adam. Captured live from Teatro alla Scala, Milan 16 May 2018.
‘Le Corsaire’ follows the swashbuckling adventures of a dashing pirate who journeys across the high seas to save his beloved from the Pasha’s harem with danger looming at every turn. With lavish sets and costumes, the choreography mirrors Russian ballet master Maris Petipa’s revival from 19th century St. Petersburg.
Full of action, passion and a romantic twist form the heart of this unmissable ballet. Following our sell out live production from the Bolshoi last October, it will be fascinating to see how La Scalla’s new production compares. Conductor - Patrick Fournillier; Choreographer - Anna-Marie Holmes.
