Unfamiliar with La Fille mal gardée, which we’re currently touring to Sunderland, London and Plymouth? Then allow us to introduce the ballet with four short video clips!

Early morning on the farm, and the chickens are outside having a scratch.

Our heroine is Lise, who lives on the farm.

Lise’s mother is the over-protective Widow Simone, a cantankerous dame (and occasional clog dancer).

Lise is madly in love with a young farm-hand named Colas. But will they ever earn her mother’s blessing?

Find out for yourself by coming to see us dance La Fille mal gardée on tour!
