The English National Ballet is the UK's premier touring ballet company. With Tamara Rojo as Artistic Director, it is now coming to Madrid. 

Le Corsaire (The Pirate) is a thrilling ballet about Conrad, a dashing pirate, and his love for Medora, a beautiful harem girl. In this swashbuckling drama you can expect everything from captive maidens to rich sultans, kidnap to rescue and love to betrayal. The production culminates in a shipwreck which is one of the most breathtaking spectacles in ballet.

The English National Ballet is the first British company to perform work that showcases some of the most bravura male dancing in the ballet repertoire.

Hollywood film designer Bob Ringwood - known for Batman, Alien 3 and Troy - has created the sets and costumes for this production. In this ripping period piece you will be taken on an adventure story which promises unmissable entertainment and great dancing.
