Le Corsaire, based on Lord Byron’s poem, is a classical heritage ballet first performed at the Paris Grand Opera in 1856.
Choreographed and staged by the legend himself: Yuri Grigorovich, it incorporates all the iconic dancing scenes: Le Jardin Animé, Pas d’Esclave, the Grand Pas de Trois des Odalisques and Le Corsaire Pas de Deux, which are among classical ballet’s most iconic and performed excerpts. Yuri Grigorovich first staged this ballet in 1994 at the Bolshoi Theatre.
The story follows the adventures of Conrad, chief of the pirates, and Medora, the young Greek woman he loves. Le Corsaire, much like another famous pirate tale, glosses over kidnapping while focusing on the adventures and romance.
This season’s Abu Dhabi Classics programme is organized by the Department of Culture and Tourism and produced by Flash Entertainment.
