Based on an 1828 French ballet with music adapted by John Lanchbery from Ferdinand Hérold's original score, La Fille mal gardée was a resounding success on its premiere in 1960 and has remained a firm favourite in The Royal Ballet's repertory.
With choreography by Frederick Ashton this funny, tender and true ballet of rural bliss will put a spectacular spring in your step.
Country beauty Lise is the only daughter of Simone, a widow and owner of a prosperous farm.
When she falls in love with farm lad Colas, she's about to upset the apple cart, as her mother has her own ideas about her daughter's future.
Simone's far more ambitious plan is that Lise should marry Alain, the son of a wealthy landowner. Alain seems as uninterested in marrying Lise as Lise is Alain. Simone initially takes the hard line but eventually gives Lise and Colas her blessing.
