Uruguayan National Ballet to Stage “Le Corsaire”

MONTEVIDEO – Thursday night’s performance here of “Le Corsaire” by the Uruguayan National Ballet will offer “a playful world of fantasy,” set designer Hugo Millan told EFE.

The piece is the company’s second production under the artistic direction of Spain’s Igor Yebra, and will have a Brazilian-flavored opening since the roles of pirate captain Conrad and his paramour, Medora, will be played by Brazilians Gustavo Carvalho and Mel Olivera.

Choreography is by Anna Marie Holmes following, as most modern performances of “Le Corsaire,” the work of Marius Petipa and Jules Perrot.

“Le Corsaire,” originally choreographed by Joseph Mazilier to the music of Adolphe Adam, was first presented by the ballet of the Theatre Imperial de l’Opera in Paris on Jan. 23, 1856.

Millan, who last April received the Hong Kong Dance Award for his design and staging of “Le Corsaire,” explained that by using light effects, audiovisual projections on curtains and “splits” on the stage, his equipment creates optical illusions depicting “a spice market in an exotic, Oriental place,” or a cave filled with loot.

“This involves a lot of tricks on the stage, where we play with technology, light and combined projections to generate a 3D illusion of realism,” Millan said.

“Le Corsaire,” staged for the first time at Montevideo’s National Auditorium in 2014, “attracts a large audience because it is a big comedy with humor and can be enjoyed by a wider audience,” Millan said.
