La Fille Mal Gardée
ABOUT: A Comedy Ballet that will Move Your Heart!
One of the oldest ballets still regularly performed, La Fille Mal Gardée (The Wayward Daughter) is a blissful evocation of rural living in a comedy depicting feelings of innocence and eternal spring. The dimwitted, umbrella-obsessed Alain will entertain you, while the sweet, innocent love of Lisa and Colin will move your heart.
