Ballett: La Fille mal gardée (The Wayward Daughter) - Schedule, Program & Tickets

Ballett: La Fille mal gardée (The Wayward Daughter)

Approximate duration: 2 hours 15 minutes, 1 break 20 minutes

Czech premiere: April 19, 2018 at the National Theater

Will wild young Lise fight for her love despite her desperately overprotective mother? Will she marry her beloved colas? Or will she listen to her mother's words and accept Alain, who is wealthy but a little "crazy"?

This masterpiece by Frederick Ashton is inspired by the older French ballet by Jean Dauberval. We are invited to a picturesque landscape similar to Suffolk, a place Ashton holds dear.

The backdrops are like cartoons, we enjoy folk festivals, dancing chickens and a live pony, and are drawn into a happy summer atmosphere.

Despite its cheerful character, the work is technically extremely demanding, with difficult pas de deux and solos that express the passionate nature of the young lovers.
