Widely regarded as the definitive version of comic ballet La Fille mal gardée, this video showcases Frederick Ashton's choreography as designed for the London Royal Ballet in 1960 and features the original cast, with Nadia Nerina and David Blair in roles that Ashton created with them in mind. Nadia Nerina's "joyous, soaring skill, which is Lise's signature" (Financial Times) and David Blair's technical and interpretative genius are perfectly offset by Stanley Holden's hilarious travesti turn as Widow Simone, and Alexander Grant, who brings pathos and humour to the character of Alain.
