La Fille du Regiment was composed by Gaetano Donizetti in 1839 with libretto by Jules-Henry Vernoy de Saint-Georges and Jean Francois Bayard.
Synopsis: Marie is no ordinary canteen girl. Adopted and raised by a squadron of French soldiers and unaware of her aristocratic lineage, this spunky young woman falls for a handsome villager. But when her past comes to whisk her away, will she fall in line or follow her heart? A laugh-out-loud hit, Donizetti’s romantic comedy mixes hilarious hijinks with vocal pyrotechnics in this witty and heartwarming production.
This two-act opera is sung in French with English supertitles. The total run time is 2 hours and 7 minutes. We will have a short intermission. This 2006 production stars Natalie Dessay, Juan Diego Florez, and Felicity Palmer.
