"Le Corsaire"
ballet in two actslibretto by J. Saint-Georges and J. Mazilier
based on the poem of the same name by J. Byron
choreography by M. Petipa, G. Tutkibaeva
The ballet Le Corsaire has been considered a bright pearl in the treasury of world musical classics for more than one and a half hundred years. Along with another famous masterpiece of Adolphe Adam, the ballet Giselle, it is included in the golden fund of the world ballet repertoire. The libretto is based on Byron's poem of the same name. Before Adam, Byron's poem was carried to the music scene by other composers, in particular G. Verdi composed the opera of the same name in 1848. Ballets were also staged. The first known ballet performance under the same name was staged at La Scala in Milan in 1826, choreographed by the Italian choreographer Giovanni Galcerani, but all these ballets have not survived to this day.
