In brief

The version of Le Corsaire by Manuel Legris goes on stage at Hong Kong Cultural Centre's Grand Theatre, as part of the 52nd edition of the Hong Kong Arts Festival 2024. It is Legris's first revival of a nineteenth century classic, fully highlighting the intent and innovativeness of his choreographic approach and his musical and dramaturgic quest.

With its clear and accessible plot, notable attention to musicality and relations among characters, the sumptuous and evocative décor and costumes by Luisa Spinatelli, it is an occasion recombining the energy virtuosity, the lyricism and romanticism of one of the 19th century’s most adventurous and thrilling ballets d’action with the talents of the La Scala dancers.
