19:00 Le Corsaire
Ballet in three acts to music by Adolphe Adam. Libretto by A.Saint-George and J.Mazilier as adapted by Yuri Grigorovich inspired by the poem by G.Byron. Choreographer-director: Yuri Grigorovich. “Le Corsaire” is one of the classical heritage ballets and it has remained in repertory of many theatres for more than 150 years. For the first time it was performed on the stage of Paris Grand Opera in 1856. The ballet authors are as follows: libretto – A.Saint-George and J.Mazilier, ballet master – J.Mazilier. Two years later “Le Corsaire” was performed in the Bolshoi Theatre in St. Petersburg. There it was staged by a famous choreographer J.Perro and later it was revived by M.Petipa. At the Russian stage the ballet saw numerous alterations and revivals, but it was M.Petipa’s version that remained. “Le Corsaire” turned out to be amazingly durable. The music and the plot were employed by many choreographers giving new adaption of the previous choreography or creating some peculiar directions. Artists and spectators were unchangeably attracted by the freedom-loving spirit of Byron’s poem, which served as a basis for the libretto, human passion and romantic excitement of the theme.
