Le Corsaire

English National Ballet

Le Corsaire (The Pirate) is a thrilling ballet about Conrad, a dashing pirate, and his love for Medora, a beautiful harem girl. It is a swashbuckling drama of captive maidens, rich sultans, kidnap and rescue, disguise and conspiracy, love and betrayal, culminating in a shipwreck, which is one of the most breathtaking spectacles in ballet.

English National Ballet is the first UK company to perform the complete work which showcases some of the most bravura male dancing in the ballet repertoire.
