Ballet in three acts
Choreography by MANUEL LEGRIS after MARIUS PETIPA
Since its very first performance in 1856 at the Paris Opéra, Le Corsaire has been regarded as one of the most impressive narrative ballets of the 19th century. Director of the Wiener Staatsballett, Manuel Legris, has choreographed a new version that draws on the rich performance traditions of Russia and France, and carefully combines spirited action, choreography, scenery and costumes by famous set designer Luisa Spinatelli. Adolphe Adam’s scintillating score features additional music by Delibes, Drigo, Pugni and others, selected by Legris, arranged by Igor Zapravdin and performed by the orchestra of the Wiener Staatsoper, conducted by Valery Ovsianikov. Stellar Russian dancers Robert Gabdullin and Maria Yakovleva take the principal roles of Conrad and Médora in this elegant and impressive production.
