Production of 2012 is back on NOVAT stage

Theatres of the world are always attracted to romantic ballet with its captivating plots, picturesque scenery and variety of dance vocabulary. The 2012 version of this production, staged in Novosibirsk represents an ironic attitude of a contemporary man to exaggerated feelings of the characters. At the same time, this is a type of ballet production, where the lyrical-adventurous narrative keeps the audience up throughout the performance, while classical and character dances delight the sophisticated eyes of ballet admirers.

Le Corsaire premiered on January 23rd 1856 at the Academy of Music and Dance, Paris. Le Corsaire became the first ballet production on the stage of the Novosibirsk opera and ballet theatre (premiered on July 26th 1946).
