La Fille Mal Gardee - Birmingham Royal Ballet
at Sadler's Wells
In Frederick Ashton’s joyous country tale, Lise and her mother clash in a foot-stomping, cabbage-throwing, battle of wills. Lise wants to marry her penniless sweetheart. Her shrewd mother prefers the prospects of the umbrella obsessed Alain, a rich landowner’s son. With dancing chickens, a dizzying ribbon dance, clog-dancing and an adorable Shetland pony, this comic masterpiece is surely the happiest of ballets.
