Opera in two acts, by Donizetti; words by Bayard and Jules H. Vernoy (Marquis St. Georges). Produced, Opéra Comique, Paris, as "La Fille du Régiment,”

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. With its infectious melodies, irresistible humour, and heartwarming tale of love conquering all, Donizetti’s delightful comedy is a treat for audiences of all ages.

By the time La Fille du Régiment premiered in 1840, Donizetti was the most famous composer in Italy and a quickly rising international star. Yet there was one place he had yet to conquer: Paris. Joining forces with two French dramatists, Donizetti set about writing an opera that would make the French capital surrender to his compositional charms. La Fille du Régiment was an instant triumph and cemented Donizetti’s position in Paris. Yet the composer wasn’t the only person who enjoyed a career boost from this captivating work. Indeed, the opera’s lead roles—which demand astonishing vocal agility, impeccable comic timing, and undeniable romantic chemistry—have helped launch the careers of some of the 20th century’s most famous singers, including legendary tenor Luciano Pavarotti.
