Nine high Cs for the tenor in one aria, and brilliant coloratura for the soprano, make "The Daughter of the Regiment" an exciting, sparkling and hilarious opening to the 2013 Season.
This delightful production from Italy’s Teatro Comunale di Bologna tells of an orphan French girl adopted by a regiment of soldiers in the waning days of World War II. The independent, spunky tomboy Marie loves Tonio, a peasant, but the Marquise tries to marry her off to a rich Duke. She’s thwarted by another “invasion” by the regiment, which frees Marie to marry Tonio.
Sung in French with English translations above the stage.
January 26, 29, February 1 and 3, 2013
