The 2016/2017 Boston Ballet season opens tonight with “Le Corsaire”, which is loosely based on Byron’s poem “The Corsair“, a love story that revolves around a slave girl and the two men who love her, a Turkish pasha and a pirate. You can read the full synopsis of the three act ballet here.

The Boston Ballet first performed this ballet in 1997 as “The Pirate”, but  artistic director, Mikko Nissinen, opted for a different version this time. Inspired by the Czech choreographer Liska production for the Bavarian State Opera Ballet and the stunning sets and costumes, “Le Corsaire” promises to be a dramatic and beautiful ballet. I look forward to enjoying tonight’s performance and suggest you purchase tickets now before the Boston Ballet production sells out.

Le Corsaire – October 27 thru November 6
