Dance Repertory Company presents ‘Le Corsaire’ April 27-28 (04/18/2012)
The Saint Mary’s University 2011-2012 performance season concludes with the Dance Repertory Company in “Le Corsaire” Friday and Saturday, April 27-28, at the SMU’s Page Theatre.

For close to four decades, the Dance Repertory Company has delighted the Winona community with quality dance productions featuring local dancers in classical and contemporary works. The classical full-length ballet “Le Corsaire” is loosely based on a poem by Lord Byron. It follows Medora, a beautiful slave 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 happy ending. Originally choreographed by Marius Petipa to music by Adolfe Adam, “Le Corsaire” continues to delight audiences more than 150 years after its premiere.

Under the artistic direction of Tammy Schmidt, The DRC’s production of “Le Corsaire” features dancers who currently train at the Minnesota Conservatory for the Arts and Saint Mary’s University, as well as community members.

Tickets to the production — set for 7:30 p.m. Saturday, April 27, and 3 p.m. Sunday, April 28 — cost $10 for adults and $5 for students and senior citizens and are available on line at www.pagetheatre.org or by calling the SMU Performance Center at (507) 457-1715 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday.
