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. Western Ballet puts its own perfectly aligned spin on the piece, with new choreography by artistic director Alexi Zubiria and sets by renowned artist Peter Crompton.

Western Ballet

Alexi Zubiria has been a principal dancer at ballet companies from Caracas to Marseille, and with the San Francisco Ballet he’s played the male lead in such pieces as Balanchine’s Theme and Variations and Le Corsaire. Now, he shares that wealth of knowledge as the artistic director of Western Ballet. Under his guidance, new generations of dancers learn to plie and pirouette with athleticism and grace. When he isn’t teaching, Zubiria directs productions that feature students as well as professional dancers.
