New Production! Acclaimed Canadian choreographer Anna-Marie Holmes’s exhilarating production, seen at the American Ballet Theatre and English National Ballet, invades the stage at La Scala with new sets and costumes by Luisa Spinatelli.
Filled with action, passion and romance, this swashbuckling comedy, based on 'The Corsair' by Lord Byron, follows a dashing pirate, Conrad (Timofej Andrijashenko), as he journeys across the high seas to save his beautiful harem girl Medora (Nicoletta Manni). An exotic, breathtaking spectacle, and an adventure not to be missed.
This is La Scala's first staging of Le Corsaire since the 19-century, where Giovanni Galzerani's production was presented on the Piermarini stage in 1826, and Domenico Ronzani's in 1857.
