For years, the Hungarian National Ballet has been working on a dedicated repertoire for ballet students. Thus, following the analogy of the well-known Little Swan Lake and Little Sleeping Beauty, in the new season ballet students are given the opportunity to take part in a real production although in a shortened form with Little Corsaire. The production, which also features both young and experienced dancers, gives children a great opportunity to get a glimpse of real theatre and ballet, while being watched by their peers. This performance is aimed at boys especially, and the artistic management of the OPERA has made no secret of its intention to encourage them to take up ballet. After the matinee with the emblematic scenes, the audience will also have the opportunity to see the original, "grown up" Le Corsaire at the end of the season, which contains the complete, exciting story of adventure, love, betrayal, life-threatening shipwreck, and eventually, a rescue.
Premiere: May 25, 2024
