La Fille du Régiment

YOUTHFUL REBELLION, FAMILY DRAMA, AND TENDER YOUNG LOVE— La Fille du Régiment is one of the greatest operatic comedies of all time. Set high in the Austrian Alps, Gaetano Donizetti’s work tells the story of Marie, an intrepid young orphan raised by a regiment of French soldiers. When the man of her dreams turns out to be a rebel fighting against the French “family” she has always known, Marie will have to overcome war, fatherly disapproval, and even the discovery of her own noble birth to make her own “happily ever after” ending come true. Read a summary of the plot here.
