A classic of The Royal Ballet, La Fille mal gardée was an immediate hit with the British public. Choreographed by Frederick Ashton in 1960, it is a highly lyrical and technically demanding take on the simple tale of love prevailing, which underpins this charming story. This 2015 revival is a ‘company triumph’ (The Independent), with Principals Natalia Osipova and Steven McRae creating terrific onstage chemistry and delivering outstanding solo performances – Osipova as a ‘perky and gamine Lise’ with ‘pin-drop precise’ phrasing (The Guardian), and McRae an instantly likeable, playful Colas whose physical articulation is ‘particularly Ashtonian’ in quality (Daily Telegraph). They are joined by Philip Mosley as Widow Simone, who brings ‘music-hall gusto’ (The Independent) to the famous clog dance of Act I.

Initially saw this through Ballet in Cinema - we gave it a standing ovation in the cinema itself! What a fun and brilliant performance.
One of the best ballets with a perfect performance, and perfect dancers! Thanks.
Saw this at ROH being recorded. Truly magnificent. saw it again a week later with different cast. OK but not with such class.
Shame the number of other tickets booked that have been with a replacement dancer. Miss you Osipova :-)
We saw this through Ballet in Cinema. One of the best ballets I have seen. Gorgeous!
