"This DVD of ABT's Le Corsaire is charming in every way. The cast is nothing less than phenomenal, the story adorable, and what a beautiful production! And the dancing is nothing short of jaw-dropping. It is sure to provide you with hours of enjoyment.
As usual, it is ANGEL CORELLA who is the highlight of his ballet. He has such wonderful, classical lines and his dancing is almost beyond belief. Also enjoyable in this production is Joaquin de Luz who dances the role of the evil pirate.
If you like ballet, don't wait a moment longer... add this one to your Amazon shopping cart now!"
Good but the Kirov ballet's version is much, much better

"I had the oportunity to attend in the Royal Theater of my city the Kirov's version of "The Corsaire" a couple of months ago and enjoyed it so, so much that got both the ABT's version and also the DVD from Kirov's. I have to say that the ABT makes a cute and nice performance, but the strength, the virtuosity, the genious, the humour and the incredible rythm is achieved by the Kirov's ballet. Honest, if you have not seen the Kirov yet... what are you waiting for?
