Tokyo Bunka Kaikan, Tokyo, Japan
Following its five-star premiere in 2013, English National Ballet’s production of Le Corsaire will tour to Japan with performances at Tokyo Bunka Kaikan from 14 - 17 July 2017.
Winner of the Robert Robson Award for Dance at the Manchester Theatre Awards, Le Corsaire follows the escapades of Conrad, a pirate, who journeys across high seas to save his harem girl, Medora. It is a swashbuckling fantasy tale of captive maidens and cutthroats, love and betrayal, deception and conspiracy, culminating in one of the most breath-taking spectacles in ballet.
The first UK company to perform the complete work, English National Ballet’s production features sets and costumes by Hollywood film designer Bob Ringwood, whose film credits include Batman, Alien 3, and Troy, and a sweeping, romantic score.
