La Fille mal gardée
When country beauty Lise falls in love with farm lad Colas, she is about to upset the apple cart. Her mother, Widow Simone, would much rather she marry Alain, the son of a pompous and wealthy vineyard owner, even though he is somewhat dim-witted and the proud possessor of two left feet. Enjoy watching this merry crew try to meet their hearts' desires with predictably hilarious results.
Ever popular because of its wit, passion and simple, engaging story, La Fille mal gardée remains a favourite for all the family. Created by Frederick Ashton in 1960, this charming ballet was an instant hit.
