La Fille Mal Gardee (The Unguarded Daughter)
A three act comedic ballet, La Fille Mal Gardee, tells the story of Lise, the only daughter of Simone, a widow and owner of a prosperous farm. Lise falls in love with Colas, a young and unworthy suitor in the eyes of Simone. Simone prefers that Lise marry the son, Alain, of a pompous, but wealthy proprietor of a nearby vineyard, Thomas.
Act One follows the lovers as they proclaim their love for one another and the mother's introduction of Alain to Lise and his awkward antics in trying to court her. Act Two occurs during harvest time, Lise makes clear her preferences for Colas as they clear the fields and dance in merriment. The harvest however is interrupted by a large storm. Act Three has Simone trying to keep a watchful eye on Lise, but the two lovers, Lise and Colas, continue to find ways to meet. Alain oblivious to Lise's disdain for him continues to romance her in a very comedic fashion. In a moment of trickery Lise fools Alain into helping her proclaim her love of Colas to Simone to the absolute horror of Thomas.
