Sir Frederick Ashton's La Fille mal gardee is one of the most
popular and successful ballets of the twentieth century. Based on
an eighteenth century work which survived only in bastardised form,
Ashton's choreographic genius was able to transform this dross into
pure gold. In this book the ballet is discussed by some of those
intimately connected with the work's creation: Ashton himself, the
designer Osbert Lancaster, the musical arranger John Lanchbery, and
the ballerina Nadia Nerina, while the historical perspective is
provided by Tamara Karsavina, Winifred Edwards, Ivor Guest, Lilian
Moore, and Marina Grut.
