About

For more than 200 years at its home in St. Petersburg, the Kirov Ballet has resided at the top echelons of artistic achievement, to which so many other companies aspire. For its second engagement in the Kennedy Center's 2004-2005 ballet season, the Kirov presents its vibrant version of the sweeping full-length ballet Le Corsaire with choreography by Pyotr Gusev, based on the 1863 composition and choreography of Marius Petipa. A tale of dashing pirates, passionate heroines, swashbuckling abductions, and dramatic ship rescues, Le Corsaire features music by Adolphe Adam, Cesare Pugni, Leo Delibes, Riccardo Drigo, and Pavel Oldenburgsky.

Accompanied by the Kennedy Center Opera House Orchestra
