The light-hearted and comedic ballet, La Fille Mal Gardée (The Wayward Daughter), is the story of Lise, the only daughter of Widow Simone. Lise loves Colas, a young farmer – but her mother has far more ambitious plans, and is determined that Lise marry Alain, the son of a wealthy landowner. Alain seems as uninterested in marrying Lise as Lise is in marrying Alain. Widow Simone persists on making the match until eventually her good nature gets the better of her, and she gives Lise and Colas her blessing.
