A NEW PRODUCTION OF DONIZETTI'S LA FILLE DU RÉGIMENT
‘This is one high-octane opera you won't want to miss!” – New York City Theatre
The Torch Theatre's live broadcasts of The Met Opera's Live in HD 2018-2019 Season continues with Donizetti's La Fille du Régiment (March 2, 2019, 5:55pm) transmitted live from the Met stage.
Full of wit and invention, Donizetti’s comic opera is a delight. The famous aria “Ah, Mes Amis,” with its nine high Cs, is one of opera’s most show-stopping numbers. Bel canto stars Pretty Yende and Javier Camarena take on the challenging vocal fireworks in Laurent Pelly’s hilarious staging. Orphaned as a small child and raised by an entire army regiment, the spirited Marie has grown up as the regiment’s ‘daughter’, raising morale and spreading joy. Tonio, a local man, falls in love with her and even joins the army for her sake. But a chance encounter with a noblewoman sparks a sudden revelation, and a tale unfolds of secret identities, long-lost family, and murky pasts. The opera is set in the Tyrol, a picturesque mountain landscape. The Met’s production places the action during the First World War.
