UK tour for Le Corsaire from English National Ballet

Date Posted: 17/08/2013

English National Ballet’s new production of Le Corsaire (The Pirate) will premiere in Milton Keynes this October, touring UK venues prior to a Christmas run at the London Coliseum.

Based on Lord Byron’s poem Le Corsaire tells the story of Conrad, a dashing pirate, and his love for Medora, a beautiful harem girl.

Billed as a swashbuckling drama of captive maidens, rich sultans, kidnap and rescue, disguise and conspiracy, love and betrayal; the production culminates in a shipwreck promising one of the most breath-taking spectacles in ballet.
