Met Opera Season 2018 – 2019
LA FILLE DU RÉGIMENT
By Gaetano Donizetti

Captured live on stage in New York and screened at Riverside, Donizetti’s comic opera is a delight that is full of wit and invention.

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.
