La Fille du Régiment

A remarkable cast brings Donizetti’s comedy to life: star soprano Diana Damrau is the orphan girl Marie, found as an infant by French soldiers and raised as if she were their own daughter. Bel canto sensation Juan Diego Flórez plays Tonio, the Tyrolean lad she falls in love with. And the great Kiri Te Kanawa makes a guest appearance in the speaking role of the Duchess of Krakenthorp. With vocal fireworks—including nine high Cs in a row for the tenor—and a plot that mixes hilarious complications with virtuoso slapstick, this is operatic comedy at its best.
