Delight in a swashbuckling pirate adventure, love story, and ballet, all wrapped into one exquisite performance by the English National Ballet!

Why Watch Le Corsaire

Le Corsaire is generally presented in three acts. When a band of corsairs led by Conrad arrives in a busy market square somewhere in the Middle East, Medora, the ward of the bazaar-owner, spots the group from her balcony. Against her will, Medora had been sold to the highest bidder by her own loathsome guardian Isaac Lanquedem. With a bit of trickery and dancing, Conrad and the corsairs flee from the market with Medora and all the slave girls. Saved from her ominous plight, Medora falls deeply in love with Conrad. What follows is an epic story of love, treachery, and stormy seas!

The set and costume design for Anna-Marie Holmes’ classic story ballet is done by two-time Academy Award-nominee Bob Ringwood, who was undoubtedly amongst the most gifted costume designers of the 20th century. Coupled with gorgeous lighting by Neil Austin, Le Corsaire has been a resounding success across the world, including Paris and Tokyo.
