Birmingham Royal Ballet at Sadlers Wells Theatre

Birmingham Royal Ballet returns with two contrasting evenings; perennial family favourite, La Fille mal gardée and Autumn Glory, a triple bill of ballets from the heart of Britain’s dance heritage.

Ever popular because of its engaging plot, wonderful wit and charming love story, La Fille mal gardée was choreographed in 1960 by Frederick Ashton. Revolving around a love triangle between country beauty Lise, her true love Colas, and Alain, the son of a rich vineyard owner, this enchanting ballet was an instant hit when it premiered and has remained in the repertoire of the world’s leading ballet companies ever since.
