What's On > Birmingham Royal Ballet - La Fille mal gardee
|Funny, tender and true, this lovely ballet of rural bliss will put a spectacular spring in your step.|
|LA FILLE MAL GARDEE|
When country beauty Lise falls in love with farm lad Colas, she’s about to upset the apple cart. Her mother, Widow Simone, has her own ideas about who her daughter should marry. Enter Thomas, a pompous and wealthy vineyard owner. And Alain, his rich son – attractive as a potato, smart as a turnip and the proud possessor of two left feet. Now sit back and enjoy as each of this merry crew try to meet their heart’s desires with predictably hilarious results.
Ever popular because of its simple, engaging story, wonderful wit and pulsating passion, La Fille mal gardée remains a firm favourite for all the family. Created in 1960 by Frederick Ashton, one of the greatest choreographers of the 20th century, this charming ballet was an instant hit.
