It's the fourth ballet the company has tried out in this role and I think it's the most successful.

Royal Ballet – La fille mal gardee – London

Every review of La Fille mal Gardée should start with an acknowledgement that, however excellent the performance may have been, the greatest credit belongs to Frederick Ashton, who more than 50 years ago put this happy masterpiece together in a few weeks of cheerful collaboration with his dancers.
