La Fille is a feast of fun; REVIEW: La Fille mal Gardee BIRMINGHAM HIPPODROME.

Byline: ALISON DAYANI

ROMANCE, pink ribbons and a dancing rooster, what more could a girl want? La Fille in question is a wayward daughter whose idyllic life of maypole dances, chickens who jig and a young love affair is enthralling.

This ballet is the essence of fun and frivolity with larger than life characters and costumes.

The clog dance with the girl's mother, played wonderfully by David Morse, and the clever ribbon sections between the two lovers are both superb.

Bubbling along with action and plenty of comedy, this show makes for a perfect introduction to ballet for all ages.

Children, and especially little girls, will adore the special appearance of a white pony on stage and be rushing home to wave around their own pink ribbons.
