Ballet Online: RCS opportunity to watch Le Corsaire ballet via Digital Theatre Plus

Staff and students at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland are invited to follow this link on Digital Theatre Plus, to watch a video of the ballet, Le Corsaire .
Digital Theatre Plus are thrilled to release our first production in our new Collection from world-renowned dance company English National Ballet.

Le Corsaire (The Pirate) is a thrilling ballet about Conrad, a dashing pirate, and his love for Medora, a beautiful harem girl. It is a swashbuckling drama of captive maidens, rich sultans, kidnap and rescue, disguise and conspiracy, love and betrayal, culminating in a shipwreck that is one of the most breathtaking
spectacles in ballet. English National Ballet is the first UK company to perform the complete work, which showcases some of the most bravura male dancing in the ballet repertoire.

Reviews of Le Corsaire
"A roaring madcap success." - The Financial Times

"Any production that gives us Alina Cojocaru as Medora is worth paying good money to see." - The Guardian

Watch Le Corsaire now using your RCS entitlement!
