La Scala: Le Corsaire

IN BRIEF

It’s all great fun: has given the dancers ravishing costumes to wear with some startling juxtapositions of colour; Holmes has pared the ballet down to two and a half hours, including intervals; Petipa and Co have provided the most exacting choreography to thrill an audience; and the orchestra plays some of ballet’s biggest hits. You could only detest this if you loathe Nutcracker’s second act.
