A Pair Of Charming Scenes From Frederick Ashton’s Ballet La fille mal gardée

“The Clog Dance from Ashton’s La fille mal gardée (The Royal Ballet)”

The Royal Ballet stages Frederick Ashton’s last full-length ballet, La fille mal gardée, this spring.

The above Clog Dance features Will Tuckett as Widow Simone and he does quite a fine job with this humorous role.

Marianela Nuñez and Carlos Acosta have a lovely time below with ribbons that afford a special take on an old school pas de deux.
