Duration: 2hrs 11min
Ever since its triumphant premiere in 1960, Frederick AshtonÂ’s La Fille mal gardÃ©e has been treasured as one of his happiest creations. Here Marianela NuÃ±ez and Carlos Acosta perfectly portray the young lovers, Lise and Colas, while William Tuckett, as the irascible but lovable Widow Simone, wonderfully leads the famous Clog Dance. Osbert LancasterÂ’s colourful, picture-book designs and Ferdinand HÃ©roldÂ’s tuneful score, provide the perfect setting.
