The plot of the ballet Le Corsaire contains all the components required to make it a success with the audience: a story about pirates with a shipwreck, abductions, loving passions and perfidious treachery… Moreover there is the variety of the cast and the choreography, the exotic character dances and the triumphant harmony of classicism.
