Le Corsaire Masterclass

Recommended Posts

This interesting and informative ENB event included inputs from:


Anna-Marie Holmes who is staging Le Corsaire and who, many years ago, purchased redundant sets and costumes from the Bolshoi in order to stage the ballet for her then company (Boston Ballet)


Gavin Sutherland, Music Director, who has edited the music for ENB's production


Jose Martin, Principal Repetiteur


Al Richards, Technical Director


and Jane Pritchard, ENB archivist who set the scene and interviewed the panel.


It is difficult to encapsulate here everything that was said but I think that we can expect an exciting ballet with a scenario still including the shipwreck but in a somewhat different order to that used by the Mariinsky 


During the second part of the evening, Laurretta Summerscales (Gulnare) and Junor Souza (Lankendem) were coached in their first act pas de deux by Anna-Marie Holmes and Jose Martin.


The audience were left keenly anticipating the opening in Milton Keynes on 17th October.
