La Scala: Le Corsaire

21 June 2018
Palace Verona, Paddington
5.30pm – Pre-screening Talk | Champagne on Arrival | 6pm – Screening

New Production! Acclaimed Canadian choreographer Anna-Marie Holmes’s exhilarating production, seen at the American Ballet Theatre and English National Ballet, invades the stage at La Scala with new sets and costumes by Luisa Spinatelli. Filled with action, passion and romance, this swashbuckling comedy follows a dashing pirate, Conrad, as he journeys across the high seas to save his beautiful harem girl Medora. An exotic, breathtaking spectacle, and an adventure not to be missed. This is the first staging of Le Corsaire, based on ‘The Corsair’ by Lord Byron, since the 19-century, where Giovanni Galzerani’s production was presented on the Piermarini stage in 1826, and Domenico Ronzani’s in 1857.
