The Royal Ballet’s glorious rural comedy, La Fille mal gardée, choreographed by Frederick Ashton is screening in cinemas across New Zealand this July. Conceived by Ashton as “…A life in the country of eternally late spring, a leafy pastorale of perpetual sunshine and the humming of bees”, the quintessentially British production is one of The Royal Ballet’s most beloved works.

Featuring an abundance of farmyard merriment, chickens, haystacks, and even a Shetland Pony, the pastoral comedy tells the story of Lise, the Widow Simone’s wayward daughter in love with Colas, a young farmer, who contrives to outwit her mother’s plans for a more advantageous marriage.

First performed in 1960 at the Royal Opera House and inspired by Ashton’s love of the Sussex countryside La Fille mal gardée showcases a wealth of delightful and challenging choreography. The virtuoso dancing has colourful injections of folk dancing and music hall traditions, noticeably seen in the famous Widow Simone clog dance and the symbolic ribbon pas de deux.

La Fille mal gardée is the final ballet of the 2014/15 Royal Opera House Live Cinema Season and the perfect production to warm a New Zealand winter with its sunny rural designs and colourful costumes translating to the silver screen across the world.
