Set sail with Verdi’s The Corsair, performed September 20-23 at the Manitoba Museum. Set in the Caribbean during the golden age of piracy, this swashbuckling tale follows Corrado, a pirate in search of adventure. With the action taking place right on the deck of the historic Nonsuch, this production brings Odyssey 2023 to a thrilling conclusion.
Inspired by the lives of actual historical female pirates Anne Bonney and Mary Read, The Corsair is a swashbuckling epic like no opera you've ever seen. In the Caribbean during the golden age of piracy, Corrado sets sail in search of adventure and glory. When she clashes with a rival pirate, Corrado gets more danger and more excitement than she bargained for.
