Night At The Ballet: Le Corsaire

Adapted from the ballet by Alexa Chipman

The ballet originally premiered 23 January 1856, in Paris. It was inspired by Lord Byron’s poem and made famous by the staging of Marius Petipa. There are many different versions of the ballet, and even the score has evolved through the years. The most famous dance of the ballet is the Pas de deux between Medora, Conrad and the Slave which was altered to be simply Medora and the Slave. This particular audio version of the story was heavily influenced by American Ballet Theatre’s production of Le Corsaire.
