Overview

A fabulous ballet for everyone to enjoy, it is set on a farmyard, and enriched with the fun of balletic chickens and ponies.

It is a comedy, a love story, and a choreographic masterpiece in one. La Fille Mal Gardée, originally choreographed by Jean Dauberval, follows the love story of Lise and a poor young farmer Colas. Lise’s mother, Simone is a rich and ambitious widow, with plans for Lise to marry Alain, a wealthy but ridiculous landowner’s son. As Lise and Colas are repeatedly prised apart, then accidentally thrown together, love triumphs over material wealth to culminate is a wonderful final scene and happy ending.

History
Premiere of this production: 01 July 1789, Grand Théâtre de Bordeaux in Bordeaux, France

La Fille mal gardée is one of the oldest and most important works in the modern ballet repertory, having been kept alive throughout its long performance history by way of many revivals. The work has undergone many changes of title and has had no fewer than six scores, some of which were adaptations of older music.

Venue Info

Royal Opera House Muscat - Muscat
Location   Al Kharjiyah Street

The Royal Opera House Muscat (ROHM) is Oman's premier venue for musical arts and culture. The opera house is located in the Shati Al-Qurm district of Muscat on Sultan Qaboos Street. Built on the royal orders of Sultan Qaboos of Oman, the Royal Opera House reflects unique contemporary Omani architecture and has a capacity to accommodate a maximum of 1,100 people. The opera house complex consists of a concert theatre, auditorium, formal landscaped gardens, cultural market with retail, luxury restaurants and an art centre for musical, theatrical and operatic productions.

History

Sultan Qaboos bin Said Al Said, who was the ruler of Oman during the opera construction, had been always a fan of classical music and arts. In 2001, the sultan ordered the building of an opera house. Initially called 'House of Musical Arts', the name 'Royal Opera House Muscat (ROHM)' was finally chosen. This opera house, which was built by Carillion Alawi, became the first in the world equipped with Radio Marconi's multimedia interactive display seatback system, Mode23. It was officially opened on October 12, 2011, with a production of the opera Turandot, conducted by Spanish tenor Plácido Domingo.

Prominent guests

The opera house had an impressive first season, with performances by Plácido Domingo, Andrea Bocelli, and soprano Renée Fleming. There have also been music performances by world-renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma and the London Philharmonic Orchestra, the American Ballet Theatre in a production of Don Quixote, The Paul Taylor Dance Company, the performance of Swan Lake by the Mariinsky Ballet, and trumpeter Wynton Marsalis with New York city's Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra. There have been some Arab artists performing at the opera house as well such as Majida El Roumi as well as a tribute in honour of legendary Arab singer Um Kalthoum. In March 2013, Indian violin icon Dr L. Subramanyam performed at the opera house and described it as the only orchestra in the Middle East composed entirely of musicians from the region.
