Ms Kathleen's Favorite Ballet Video
of the day
What are you watching?
Here is my favorite ballet video today...
In 1867 composer Delibes created a new score of music for a Le Corsaire revival Joseph Mazilier created. Later Petipa kept Delibe's music for his second and subsequent revivals of Le Corsaire. He greatly revised and expanded this section into a new and elaborated version called Le Jardin Animé, complete with garlands and a manicured lawn at the gardens of Versailles. For Petipa’s third and final revivals, two new variations were added to Le Jardin Animé . It is now sometimes performefull length Le Corsaire as a short pas divertissement.

WHAT DOES LE CORSAIRE MEAN?
French for "pirate". Le Corsaire is a ballet typically presented in three acts, with a libretto originally created by Jules-Henri Vernoy de Saint-Georges loosely based on the poem The Corsair by Lord Byron. Originally choreographed by Joseph Mazilier to the music of Adolphe Adam, it was first presented by the ballet of the Théâtre Impérial de l’Opéra in Paris on 23 January 1856. All modern productions of Le Corsaire are derived from the revivals staged by the Ballet Master Marius Petipa for the Imperial Ballet of St. Petersburg throughout the mid to late 19th century.
