Becoming Widow Simone

The wayward daughter’s backstages

One of the work's central characters, Widow Simone brings comic relief to Frederick Ashton's pantomime ballet La Fille mal gardée, on the bill at the Palais Garnier until July 14th 2018. In the makeup workshops, Octave witnesses the dancer's transformation and asks him a few questions. To play comedy, you have to stay focused!
