Romantic in spirit, the ballet is a love story between a pirate and a slave girl, and the action takes place in Adrianople at the beginning of the XNUMXth century. The ballet, extremely demanding from a technical and interpretative point of view, has been cast for a decade by big names of the national scene such as Corina Dumirescu, Cristina Opincaru, Ovidiu Matei Iancu and Gabriela Popovici.

Russian choreographer Vasily Medvedev about the current production on the ONB stage:

"Over the last few years, in the world of ballet, the interest in classical dance has obviously increased. The festive atmosphere and beauty of this style are always present in the show. The audience is delighted by the purity and fragility of classical ballet as well as by the amazing performances and skills of the dancers trained in recent years. The choreographic language is easily understood by the public. The Corsair, which is already 150 years old since it was danced, has remained to the taste of spectators in love with classical ballet."

As proof, the theaters are full even after more than a decade since the premiere.
