The Bolshoi Ballet’s magnificent staging of Le Corsaire by the outstanding Russian choreographer, Alexei Ratmansky, has proved an extraordinary international success.

Set on the banks of the Ionian Sea against a climate of political unrest between the Greeks and the Turks, this exotic ballet contains all the ingredients of a traditional Russian spectacular; love, intrigue, deception, a splendid shipwreck, a harem and a kidnap.
