Choreographed by Anna-Marie Holmes after Marius Petipa and Konstantin Sergeyev
With fairytale-like staging and a “Pas de deux” that made Rudolf Nureyev and Margot Fonteyn a legend and always awaited in the ballet galas, Le Corsaire is considered a choreographic milestone in the history of ballet. Le Corsaire debuted with enormous success at La Scala to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the legendary choreographer Marius Petipa. The choreographic version by Anna-Marie Holmes after Marius Petipa and Konstantin Sergeyev made it “great fun! Spinatelli has given the dancers ravishing costumes and the orchestra plays some of the ballet’s biggest hits. La Scala’s ballet company in top form” (Gramilano).
