Gerald Dowler reviews La Fille Mal Gardee at the Mikhailovsky Theater:


Mikhail Messerer has brought Frederick Ashton’s 1960 bucolic comedy to his company, St Petersburg’s Mikhailovsky Ballet, with all the care of the restorer of a much-loved painting. This is La Fille mal gardée as many have never seen it, painstakingly cleaned of the interpretative varnish and choreographic retouching of decades of performance; it is a return to the text of the BBC screening with the original cast, and is something of a revelation.
