Ballet does not get better than this. It was a beautiful evening of dance, design and music. The men were incredible with their athletic solos and the ballerinas were lovely. Several "oohs" and "ahs" were emitted by the nearly full audience.

The dancing was excellent. I especially enjoyed seeing the synchrony of the corps de ballet. However, the "story" of the Corsaire is a MESS. There were so many plot turns and sop much "acting," that it became tiresome. The most outstanding...continued

Absolutely lovely performance.
There were an inordinate number of people on the will call line however, and the show was delayed because of that.
The only negative... the audience was a little too exuberant and applauded throughout the...continued

I love the ballet and the ABT. Don't know enough about the technical aspects of ballet to be a good critic, but I really enjoyed the Le Corsaire performance. Principal dancers were outstanding. I unfortunately got stuck in horrific traffic from...continued

Beautiful sets, costumes,story, and fabulous dancing. The 6:30 lecture prepared us for this wonderful ballet I had never seen before. I will see it again at the next opportunity.

The performance was terrific. ABT has a tremendous set of athlete/dancers, great costume and set designers, and a great orchestra. Le Corsaire has lots of color and opportunities for the dancers to show off. The pre-show talks are worth...continued

We enjoyed Le Corsaire. The bravura dancing and the costumes were all the reviews said they would be. Our seats were fine, We did have to stand in an unexpectedly long line to pick up our tickets but it moved well. Next time we will go to Will...continued

Solid A for the lead dancers of Le Corsaire and an A+ to the pit orchestra. The score was an unexpected treat. We overheard several comments on how much ABT has improved, and have no reason to contradict. Although we could barely see the faces...continued

Pretty costumes, and nice dancing, but nothing super special.
Story was ok, but the show was long and kinda boring in some parts.

colorful enough, but uninteresting music, and much of the time fairly boilerplate choreography. The second-act pas de duex was by far the highlight of the evening.
