Not only does the Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers have its opening night on Friday the 15th of September but also on the 





15th and 16th of September The Empire Theatres presents:  





Queensland Ballet- La Fille mal gardée

Set in the French countryside in the 1950s, La Fille mal gardée delights and entertains audiences as a love triangle creates comic chaos.

Lise loves Colas. Colas loves Lise. But Lise’s mother, the Widow Simone, has agreed that her wayward daughter should marry Alain, son of a pompous, wealthy vineyard owner. Alain however, is more interested in his precious umbrella than romance.

What ensues is a series of mischievous antics as Lise works her way out of the Widow’s marriage contract and into the arms of her love-struck beau.

A popular family favourite because of its engaging story, colourful humour and beautiful dancing, this stunning production will leave you applauding for more.

Should be the start of a great week in Toowoomba with The Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers parade taking place through the city on Saturday the 16th and all the prize winning gardens open to the public for the whole week.
