Fred­er­ick Ash­ton’s joy­ful bal­let con­tains some of his most vir­tu­oso chore­og­ra­phy, and has been a firm favourite with au­di­ences for over 50 years. Set in a sto­ry­book vil­lage, it fol­lows the youth­ful ro­mance of Lise and Colas un­der the nose of Lise’s larger- than-life mother, Widow Si­mone. The bal­let is a whirl of danc­ing chick­ens, grouchy guardians and halfwit suit­ors. Funny and touch­ing, this Royal Bal­let pro­duc­tion is pre­sented by Palace Cine­mas Opera and Bal­let and is per­fect for all ages.
