Maria Gutierrez (The Slave-girl); Davit Galstyan (The Corsair); Takafumi Watanabe (The Sultan); Juliette Thélin (The Sultan’s Favourite Concubine); Demian Vargas (The Corsair’s Companion); Juliana Bastos, Julie Loria (Two Slaves); Henrik Victorin (The Wealthy Slave-trader); Cédric Pons, Joël Sitbon (Two Guards); Kader Belargi (Choreography); David Coleman (Musical Director);

"he Ballet du Capitole’s new production of Le Corsaire represents dance making at a very high level. There is an artistic collaboration at work here that has paid huge dividends, choreographically, musically and scenically. David Coleman has done an admirable job of re-orchestrating what, in the wrong hands, could have been something of a hotch-potch, given that themes from Adolphe Adam’s original score are intercut with additions by Massenet, Arenski and Sibelius. Belarbi has succeeded in capturing the essence of a nineteenth century ballet and in breathing new life into it ... The production is a marvelous distillation of expert collaborative ideas."
