Notes & Reviews:
La Fille Du Régiment seems to burst over with Gallic wit and charm. It tells a tale of young love-frustrated, then victorious and gave the composer Gaetano Donizetti ample chances to write military rhythms, pastoral mood music and passionate love exchanges, as well as to create a role that any prima donna with a sense of humor and a lot of technique would fight to perform.
Marie, found abandoned as a baby on the battlefield, was adopted and raised by soldiers. She is the darling of the regiment.
When a Marquise tells the Sergeant that Marie is actually her niece and she must leave the regiment, the troops are heartbroken. The Marquise plans to educate and marry Marie in a manner befitting a lady of quality, but Marie wants only to return to her regiment and the man she loves.Notes & Reviews:
