The ballet in 3 acts with prologue and epilogue was based on a poem by George Gordon Byron The Corsair. The story takes place on the coast of Greece and begins in a slave market where women are sold. The pasha Seid has a harem for which he wants to buy the beautiful Médora, who, however, loves Conrad. After the confusion about purchase and robbery, liberation and imprisonment, love triumphs. Le Corsaire was the last ballet composition by the composer Adolphe Adam. The premiere took place in Paris in 1856.
