La Fille Mal Gardée

Practicality has its place, but the heart wants what it wants. Such is the case in the charming ballet La Fille Mal Gardée, roughly translated as “The Poorly Guarded Girl.” The girl in question is Lise, who loves the dashing Colas—although her mother Mme. Simone would prefer that she turn her attention to the dimwitted, but wealthy, Alain. What follows is a series of secret rendezvous, comedic near-misses, and acrobatic attempts to wriggle out of curfew. And although the delightfully frothy ballet was first performed in the late 18th century, its sweet story and memorable characters make it one of the most popular works in the modern repertoire.

Ajkun Ballet Theatre

The globetrotting careers of dancers Leonard and Chiara Ajkun inspired the scope of their very own Ajkun Ballet Theatre. Here, they continue to direct classic ballets and choreograph an average of five new programs each year. The company’s expansive repertoire ranges from large-scale productions such as Swan Lake, with its famous robot battles, to one-act ballets such as Spartacus.
