The simple story of Lise, her suitor Colas, and Lise's larger-than-life mother who tries to marry her off to the simpleton son of a rich neighbor is both funny and touching, and filled with glorious detailed movement. La Fille Mal Gardée is perfect for ballet newcomers and irresistible to audiences of all ages.
