La Fille Mal Gardee No more Nutcrackers for Scottish Ballet. as the company knocks its long-running seasonal fave on the head and replaces it with this colouiful family ballet by quintessentially



' English choreographer Frederick Ashton. Due to the company’s much-reported

v. rangles with the Scottish Arts Council. this is not the new Christmas ballet the company hoped to stage. and in some cases had already advertised. But festive ballet— goers can rest assured that this vibrant pantomime-orientated ballet. lent to the company by Birmingham Royal Ballet. will fill the places that niitcrackers usually do. Guest star for the opening perfonnances in Glasgow is that diminuitive star of yesteryear. Wayne Sleep. See New Shows. page ()3. Call venues for details.
