The Lyric


Funny, tender and true, La Fille mal gardée (The Wayward Daughter) is a lovely ballet of rural bliss that will put a spectacular spring in your step.

When country beauty Lise falls in love with farm lad Colas, she’s about to upset the apple cart. Her mother, Widow Simone, has her own ideas about who her daughter should marry. Enter Thomas, a pompous and wealthy vineyard owner. And Alain, his rich son – attractive as a potato, smart as a turnip and the proud possessor of two left feet.

Now sit back and enjoy as this merry crew try to meet their heart’s desires with hilarious results. Ever popular because of its simple, engaging story and wonderful wit, La Fille mal gardée remains a firm favourite for all the family.

Pre-Performance Talk: Come along to a pre-performance talk before Fire & Fury on Wednesday 10th October at 6:30pm. Please call Box Office on 01752 267222 to reserve your place.
