Feb. 9, 2012 - PRLog -- Le Corsaire, a ballet performed by the Bolshoi Ballet in Moscow, will screen live via satellite on Sanibel Sunday, March 11, at 11 a.m. at BIG ARTS Schein Performance Hall, 900 Dunlop Road. The screening is part of the BIG ARTS Opera and Ballet in Cinema Series, a new program in which both live and pre-recorded opera and ballet performances are screened via satellite technology from the world’s most distinguished theaters. Admission is $20.            

Presented in three acts, Le Corsaire is loosely based on the poem The Corsair by Lord Byron and was first presented by the ballet of the Thèâtre Impérial de l’Opéra in Paris in 1856. The ballet introduces audiences to Medora, a young Greek girl, and Conrad, a dashing pirate, as they journey through a tapestry of captive maidens, rich sultans, swashbuckling abductions, and dramatic rescues—all culminating in a shipwreck that’s one of the most breathtaking spectacles in all of ballet. This lavish revival production by Moscow’s Bolshoi Ballet is believed to be the most expensive production of a ballet ever mounted, estimated at $1.5 million.  

The digital projection system BIG ARTS has installed for this new program is the same as that used by Pixar, NFL and Disney Studios. All Opera & Ballet in Cinema screenings are presented in surround sound and high-definition.
