The Daughter of the Regiment

February 4–12, 2023

MUSIC BY GAETANO DONIZETTI
LIBRETTO BY JULES-HENRI VERNOY DE SAINT-GEORGES, JEAN FRANÇOIS BAYARD 

Love is a battlefield.
Marie is no ordinary canteen girl. Adopted and raised by a squadron of French soldiers and unaware of her aristocratic lineage, this spunky young woman falls for a handsome villager. But when her past comes to whisk her away, will she fall in line or follow her heart? A laugh-out-loud hit, Donizetti’s romantic comedy mixes hilarious snafus with vocal pyrotechnics in this witty and heartwarming production. 

Sung in French with English captions projected above the stage. Costumes created by Washington National Opera Costume Studio.
