Frederick Ashton's joyful ballet 'The Wayward Daughter' (La Fille Mal Gardee) tells the story of Lise, the only daughter of widow Simone.
Lise loves a young farmer called Colas, but her mother has far more ambitious plans for her, and is determined that she'll marry the son of a wealthy landowner instead. But Alain is as uninterested in Lise as she is in him. Will Simone eventually see sense and let her marry Colas?
