About

An opéra-comique by an Italian composer? This was a rarity in its day, but after the “barely averted disaster” of its opening night, Donizetti’s La Fille du régiment became a popular success, not least for the high Cs demanded from Tonio in the famous tenor aria “Ah! mes amis, quel jour de fęte!” The story revolves around Marie, the canteen girl of the Regiment, whose lover Tonio joins the army to be near her just as she is claimed for marriage into nobility. This acclaimed Teatro Donizetti production was considered by turns “hilarious… tender and moving… [and] overwhelmingly brilliant” by bachtrack.com.

“… Michele Spotti conducted the Orchestra Donizetti Opera with great enthusiasm, producing quite a bit of volume. The orchestration of La Fille, albeit sophisticated and non-trivial, does have marching band quality at times, and Spotti did not shy away from these, but always with elegance. … The singing cast was nothing short than excellent. Sara Blanch sang Marie with a brilliant, silvery soprano, capable of extremely easy, unfaltering high and super-high notes, full of harmonics. Her interpretation was funny, sweet, and engaging.” – bachtrack.com

“... an unforgettable evening … without a doubt the best production of the 2021 festival.” – Opera Wire
