Le Corsaire is a classical ballet that captures the essence of adventure, romance, and swashbuckling action on the high seas. Inspired by Lord Byron’s poem “The Corsair,” the ballet follows the story of Conrad, a dashing pirate captain, and his love interest, the beautiful Medora. 

Set against the backdrop of the Mediterranean, the plot is filled with pirates, slave traders, and forbidden love. As the story unfolds, Conrad embarks on daring rescue missions to save Medora from the clutches of the villainous slave trader, Lankendem, leading to a series of dramatic and visually stunning pas de deux and pas de trois.


Drigo (1846-1930) was an Italian composer and conductor best known for his contributions to ballet music in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. Drigo, who was born in Padua, began his career as a violinist before becoming a conductor at the Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg, Russia. It was in this job that he rose to prominence for his ballet compositions. His collaborations with renowned choreographers like as Marius Petipa resulted in some of the era’s most enduring and popular ballets, including “Le Corsaire,” “La Bayadère,” and “Harlequinade.”
