  1. Royal Ballet in La Fille Mal Gardee at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Monday 15 March 2010Performance in rep until 28 April 2010

    ‘It is a national treasure, something as essentially English as pantomime (to which it pays its dues), enshrining a way of dancing and playing – and under-playing – comedy that is essentially ours.’  

  2. Royal Ballet in La Fille Mal Gardee at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Monday 15 March 2010Performance in rep until 28 April 2010

    ‘Marianela Nuñez is an exuberantly naughty Lise, scampering through quarrels with her mother. Her dancing has a wonderful spring to it, with sparkling footwork and a soaring jump that lets her bound into the air.’ 

  3. Royal Ballet in La Fille Mal Gardee at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Mark Monahan, Telegraph, Monday 15 March 2010Performance in rep until 28 April 2010

    ‘There is so much to adore in Frederick Ashton’s tale of love-among-the-hay-bales, from the delicate, detailed poetry of his steps, and the effervescent Hérold/Lanchbery score, to Osbert Lancaster’s picture-postcard designs.’ 

  4. Royal Ballet in La Fille Mal Gardee at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Monday 15 March 2010Performance in rep until 28 April 2010

    ‘With this kind of casting, Fille still ranks as the funniest work on the classical stage.’  

  5. Royal Ballet in La Fille Mal Gardee at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Debra Craine, Times, Monday 15 March 2010Performance in rep until 28 April 2010

    ‘From the moment the chickens started their little dance an evening of whimsy, humour and gentle English sensibility was guaranteed to lighten winter’s grey spirits.’  

  6. Royal Ballet in La Fille Mal Gardee at Royal Opera House

    Press Review David Dougill, Sunday Times, Monday 15 March 2010Performance in rep until 28 April 2010

    ‘It’s a work in which the dancers always look as if they are thoroughly enjoying themselves, and has the same heartwarming effect on the audience.’ 

  7. Royal Ballet in La Fille Mal Gardee at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 15 March 2010Performance in rep until 28 April 2010

    ‘Considerable art is concealed in the seamless unfurling of this ballet. The dancing is notoriously hard. Ashtonian choreography is always an expression of character, and Lise has to combine high, billowy jumps with soft port de bras and skittish footwork.’
