Le Corsaire 

When: Sun., Oct. 22, 11:55 a.m. 2017
Price: $19.55
Conrad is a pirate who washed ashore with some of his crew after a shipwreck. A group of Greek women find them, and Conrad falls in love at first sight with Medora, one of the young women. Things are definitely on the upswing for Conrad, but Lankandem the Turkish slave dealer appears on the scene and absconds with Medora and her friends. Conrad and company then embark on a brave rescue mission, which requires him to conquer deception, disguises, betrayal and reversals before true love can be won. Le Corsaire, the ballet adaption of a poem by Lord Byron, is a massive undertaking; The Bolshoi Ballet's 2007 production cost a reported $1.5 million to mount. The Bolshoi returns with a live broadcast of Le Corsaire that uses Alexei Ratmansky's choreography (itself directly inspired by some of Marius Petipa's 1899 choreography). The ballet is simulcast at 11:55 a.m. today at the AMC Chesterfield 14 (3000 Chesterfield Mall, Chesterfield; Tickets are $19.55.
