La Fille Mal Gardee - The Royal Ballet

La Fille Mal Gardee - The Royal Ballet

Royal Opera House

Price from € 35.90

Cornfields, haystacks and farmyard merriment are the backdrops to Frederick Ashton's sunny rural comedy La Fille Mal Gardee, inspired by the landscapes of his beloved Sussex. This is one of The Royal Ballet's most popular works - and no wonder given its wealth of delightful choreography, begun with farmyard chickens! Its many highlights include the Ribbon pas de deux and the famous Clog Dance. Conducted by The Royal Ballet's Music Director Barry Wordsworth, this wonderfully light hearted and iconic Ashton ballet is perfect entertainment for newcomers and Royal Ballet regulars of all ages. Young lovers Colas and Lisa find their attempts  to come together continually thwarted by Lisa's over protective mother, the Widow Simone. What's worse, Alain, the clownish son of a wealthy landowner, is the one Widower Simone has embarked for Lisa. Fortunately, a summer thunderstorm proves the catalyst  for the lover's eventual union, and true love finally wins  the day.
