Le Corsaire is a ballet in three acts, with a libretto originally created by Jules-Henri Vernoy de Saint-Georges loosely based on the poem The Corsair by Lord Byron. In this opulent staging of The American Ballet Theatre, Giuseppe Picone's Conrad flies through the air while the court is off to the side watching. Marcelo Gomes' Ali steps forward to close off the group at the left of Conrad's landing point. I really like the bold red strokes against the violets, giving motion and passion with the color. The choreography is by Konstantin Sergeyev, after Marius Petipa in American Ballet Theatre's "Le Corsaire."
