Inspired by the poem of the nineteenth-century poet Lord Byron, Le Corsaire is a flamboyant ballet set in the Mediterranean Sea controlled by the Ottoman Empire. It is a story of pirates and slave girls' exciting adventure and romance, packed with virtuoso dancing.

The ballet has seen several revisions throughout its long performance history. The Tokyo Ballet premiered in 2019 the exhilarating production staged by Anna-Marie Holmes with the exuberant sets and costumes of the Teatro alla Scala. The thrilling ballet returns with three different casts. Join us on an adventurous journey!
