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

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

Review from Steve

From the description, I wasn't sure if this performance would include La Corsair, it didn't. It was a combination of three ballet performances that were impressive and entertaining. Three intermissions were timely in reducing audience fatigue...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.

Loved ABT. Fun ballet with lots of dancing and, finally, a first rate cast. Seats could have been a bit better for red velvet.

Wonderful dancing, nice scenery,great choreography.
Why do I always sit in the last row? I always order my tickets early. Do the start assigning seats with the last row?

Review from frankieagogo

Le Corsaire is a wonderful ballet, but not a great one. Inspired by Byron's poem, The Corsair, the ballet falters in telling its story in a engrossing manner, indeed, much of the time the story seems irrelevant to the performances of the dancers....continued

Review from Lila Aurich

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

Our seats were fantastic. The performance (costumes & choreography) were disappointing

Review from Alan Pierpoint

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

Review from r steele

Dancing excellent! Dance selections, OK.
1) Apollo - flat out amazing. Classic Balanchine. It does not get much better than Paloma Herrera as Terpsichore.
2) Ratmansky's Chamber Symphony - interesting choreography but conceptually confusing. No...continued

Splendid, visually sumptuous, beautiful! A wonderful day at the ballet, just doesn't get any better. What a privilege to see the magical Daniil Simkin, as the slave, in Corsaire. He is going to be a mega star in the ballet world! Run, as fast as...continued

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

Review from Goldstar Member

The loge seat was great, ticket pick up at will call was fast. The performance was very good. I have always wanted to see Le Corsaire and I enjoyed it, but there are other ballets I like more.

Wow first of all longest will-call line ever - they held the show to get us all in which was perfect! The ballet itself was wonderful. The set was beautiful and the ship was amazing. The first act felt a little slow, but it really picked up and my...continued
