How lucky to be at last night’s debut of Le Corsaire in Milton Keynes Theatre. My friends and I regularly support the theatre. The staging and the costumes were magnificent, the first setting in the market was perhaps my favourite. How amazing were the principal dancers as they achieved perfection (at least to my untutored eyes)! There were a few timing issues but the orchestra, being consummate professionals held it together beautifully.
It is a very long time since I read Byron’s poem on which this ballet is based so now I am going to re-read it and wallow in the memory of the dance which will transport me out of a mundane Friday morning.
Thank you ENB.
Best wishes to all, ballet fan or not. Denny Bradbury
