  1. English National Ballet - Le Corsaire - London Coliseum

    Press Review 4Zoe Anderson, Independent, Monday 18 January 2016Performance 13 - 24 January 2016

    English National Ballet’s Le Corsaire is a romp, packed to the gills with pirates, daft plotting and virtuoso dancing. It’s also full of male roles, taken with gusto by the home team and some terrific guest artists.
