Why See Mariinsky Ballet - Le Corsaire?
The Mariinsky Ballet returns in 2019
Set sail for adventure as the Mariinsky Ballet returns in 2019 with their quintessential staging of Marcus Petipa's vibrant swashbuckling gem, Le Corsaire. Taken from a poem by Lord Byron, the Mariinsky's own production has long been considered the most exhilarating and exquisite, displaying the technique and talent of this much-storied company that keeps audiences coming back year after year. Though annually invited to the Opera House, this engagement represents the first time in a decade they've performed Le Corsaire in the nation's capital. If the success of that run is anything to go by, we recommend you secure your seats, fast!
Avast me hearties - the story of Le Corsaire
A jewel in every company's repertoire, Le Corsaire is a richly decorated trip across the seven seas in the company of the charming pirate Conrad whose love for glittering treasure is usurped when he encounters the dazzling slave girl Medora. Cue three acts full of kidnapping, mutinous shipmates, love and the perils of the sea make this bravura show a feast for the eyes whilst the score fills your senses with joy.
Opening night: 9 April 2019
