The Pirate (Le Corsair)

Descripción

BALLET IN THREE ACTS (1856)
INSPIRED BY LORD BYRON'S POEM, THE CORSAIR
LIBRETTO BY VERNOY DE SAINT-GEORGES AND JOSEPH MAZILIER (VERSION BY YURI GRIGOROVICH)
TEATRO COLÓN PRODUCTION

The legendary pirate Conrad imagined by Lord Byron taken to ballet in a comedy tone returns to the stage of the Colón to invite us to recreate his adventures and misfortunes. His mission will be to rescue the enslaved Medora, destined to be sold to a pasha, from the clutches of the merchant Lankedem. Exoticism, romance and virtuosity are the keys that make Anne-Marie Holmes' version a sure recipe for a dazzling work.
