Sunday 22nd October 2017 – Le Corsaire (Bolshoi Ballet broadcast)
Music: Adolphe Adam
Choreography: Alexei Ratmansky
Libretto: Jules Henri Vernoy de Saint-Georges & Joseph Mazilier
Amidst a bustling market, the pirate Conrad falls in love at first sight with the beautiful Medora, the ward of the slave merchant Lankedem’s bazaar. Conrad kidnaps Medora when Lanquedem decides to sell her to the Pasha.
Inspired by Lord Byron’s epic poem and reworked by Alexei Ratmansky from Petipa’s exotic 19th century classic, this miracle of the repertoire is one of the Bolshoi’s most lavish productions.
Complete with a magnificent awe-inspring shipwreck and dramatic scenery, this grand romance allows enough dancing for nearly the entire company and made especially for those who seek miracles in theatre.
