Le Corsaire

Jules-Henri Vernoy de Saint-Georges
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.
