In a creative twist, Taconic Opera finishes its 15th season by taking Donizetti's famous comic opera , Daughter of the Regiment (La Fille du Regiment) into the future. This hilarious comedy by the composer of Don Pasquale and Elixir of Love is known throughout the world as the opera that put Pavarotti on the map as the King of the High C's. The story centers around a girl who, found abandoned as a baby, was raised lovingly by a regiment of soldiers. At the stage of her life when she is emerging into womanhood and is a little rough around the edges from her lack of exposure to female behaviors, it is discovered that she is the daughter of aristocrats and must leave her beloved life with the regiment and learn how to fit into high society as a lady.The performances will be sung in French with English dialogue. English supertitles (translations above the stage) will enhance understanding and appreciation.
