The story of Le Corsaire
Conrad, a pirate, falls in love with the beautiful Medora on a busy market square. Medora belongs to slave trader Lankedem, who tries to sell her to the Pasja, but Conrad abducts her to avoid this fate.
This special ballet was inspired by a legendary poem by Lord Byron. It was choreographed by Alexei Ratmansky, who gave the exotic 19th century classic a new approach.
