Le Corsaire. The Nutcracker Suite. English National Ballet. Christmas 2015 New Year 2016

Le Corsaire (The Pirate) follows the escapades of a dashing pirate, Conrad, who journeys across the high seas to save his beautiful harem girl, Medora. It is a swashbuckling fantasy tale of captive maidens and cutthroats, love and betrayal, culminating in a shipwreck which is one of the most breath-taking spectacles in ballet.  Full of action, passion and romance, this classic story ballet has been reinvented by English National Ballet, the only UK company to perform the complete work. This extravagant and exhilarating production enthralled audiences and received rave reviews when it premiered in 2013. Staged by Anna-Marie Holmes, with the breath-taking sets by Hollywood designer Bob Ringwood (Batman) and English National Ballet Philharmonic performing the sweeping, romantic score, Le Corsaire is an unmissable, entertaining adventure.
