La Fille Mal Gardée
April / May
Royal Opera House
£5 – £97
As part of the Spring 2015 season, The Royal Opera House are showing this much loved ballet – which has been said to have some of Frederick Ashton’s most brilliant choreography. La Fille Mal Gardée is based on an 1828 French ballet, and has remained a favourite in The Royal Ballet’s repertory. It is laced with good humour and is all in all a very joyful ballet.
