    Hailed by Le Figaro as 'simply magnificent: a miracle in two acts', kader Belarbi's new production of Le Corsaire is a bold reinvention of a 19th-century classic. Belarbi's fresh scenario and choreography give this colourful yet ultimately tragic story of the corsair and the beautiful slave-girl who captures his heart renewed clarity and simplicity.

    David Coleman conducts a score based on Adolphe Adam's original work, but enhanced with music by composers from Massenet to Sibelius, as well as new compositions and orchestrations by Coleman himself. The score is a result of close collaboration between Belarbi and Coleman, and its strong and coherent musical framework brings Belarbi's staging to life.

    This is a version of Le Corsaire for the modern age, giving the work - in Belarbi's words - 'resonance and meaning today'.

    Filmed in High Definition and recorded in true Surround Sound.
