Cuban Classical Ballet of Miami will unravel “Le Corsaire” the enchanting story of sultans and pirates at Miami Dade County Auditorium

Poetry, princesses, and pirates will take the stage at Miami Dade County Auditorium on June 11, Saturday. The Cuban Classical Ballet of Miami (CCBM), committed to powering the passion for music and ballet in Miami, is returning this time with a collection of iconic performances known as “Le Corsaire”.

CCBM has played a huge role in promoting the local arts and music community of Miami. Along with bringing ballet performances to Miami theatres, it also offers ballet classes to adults seeking to hone their dancing skills.

Where poetry meets ballet

"Le Corsaire" Suite, a CCBM production, will be one of the most extraordinary musical performances ever seen on stage. With a libretto based on Lord Byron's poem The Corsair, this is an enchanting story of Sultans, maidens, princesses, and pirates.

Ballet maestro Joseph Mazilier initially choreographed the dance to Adolphe Adam's iconic composition. In 1856, the Académie Royale de Musique performed it for the first time.
