Adolphe Adam

Le Corsaire

Discover a treasure trove of virtuoso dancing in this swashbuckling comedy! This exotic fable of a dashing pirate’s love for a beautiful harem girl presents a tapestry of captive maidens, rich sultans, suspenseful abductions, and dramatic rescues—culminating in a shipwreck that’s one of the most breathtaking spectacles in all of ballet. Boasting over 120 performers, Le Corsaire perfectly showcases explosive bravura dancing from ABT’s star-studded roster of dancers.
