you would be shocked how far your body can go if your mind wasn’t there to stop it. you have it in you to keep on going. it’ll be okay.
Alina Somova, Le Corsaire, Mariinsky Ballet.
Le Corsaire (The Pirate) is a thrilling ballet about Conrad, a dashing pirate, and his love for Medora, a beautiful harem girl. It is a swashbuckling drama of captive maidens, rich sultans, kidnap and rescue, disguise and conspiracy, love and betrayal, culminating in a shipwreck which is one of the most breathtaking spectacles in ballet.
