Live Event. The British Council, in partnership with QMI presents Royal Opera House Live Cinema, the ROH screens opera and ballet productions live across the world.
La Fille Mal Gardée is presented live from the Royal Opera House.
Synopsis. Lise is the only daughter of Simone, a widow and owner of a prosperous farm. She loves Colas, a young farmer – but her mother has far more ambitious plans, and has determined 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.
La Fille displays some of Ashton's most virtuoso choreography – the youthful passion of Lise and her lover, Colas, is expressed in a series of energetic pas de deux.
