Le Corsaire Pas de Deux

This show stopping pas de deux is one of the most famous excerpts in the classical ballet repertoire.  The original ballet Le Corsaire (1856) was inspired by the exotic and mystic drama in Lord Byron’s 1814 poem, The Corsair.  Originally a pas de trois (dance of three) in the full ballet, this widely-performed excerpt is a pas de deux (dance of two) featuring the beautiful Medora and her slave named Ali.

Staged by Emily Mott after Marius Petipa

Music: Adolphe Adam and Riccardo Drigo

Lighting: Heather Hutton

Costumes: Anna Daught, Susan Proctor, and Regina Steadley
