About

In few words:

Although one of the oldest action ballets in history, it does not appear in the least dated. In July 1789, only days before the storming of the Bastille, Jean Dauberval staged the first version of La Fille mal gardée, a ballet which depicted for the first time a love story between simple peasants. Since then, several choreographers have taken up the subject, notably Marius Petipa in 1885 and Frederick Ashton in 1960. The lasting popularity of Ashton’s version which includes dancing cockerels, old ladies and umbrellas is not due merely to the perfect fluidity of the choreography, but also to the irresistible charm of the characters that Ashton brings to life with humour and subtlety.
