Le Corsaire (Pas de deux)

Marius Petipa

Although Le Corsaire’s original music score is by Adolphe Adam, the present Pas de deux, added by Marius Petipa in 1899, uses Riccardo Drigo’s music. In 1868, Marius Petipa and Jules Perrot revived the ballet for the Bolshoi Theatre of Moscow and it survives as the one we know today.
