Full of wit and invention, Donizetti’s comic opera is a
delight. The famous aria “Ah, Mes
Amis,” with its nine high Cs, is known as the Mount Everest for tenorsone of opera’s most show-stopping numbers.
Bel canto stars Pretty Yende and Javier Camarena take on the challenging vocal
fireworks in this revival, a co-production with London’s Royal
Opera House and the Wiener Staatsoper Laurent
Pelly’s hilarious staging. Orphaned as a small child and raised by
an entire army regiment, the spirited Marie has grown up as the regiment’s
‘daughter’, raising morale and spreading joy. Tonio, a local man, falls in love
with her and even joins the army for her sake. But a chance encounter with a
noblewoman sparks a sudden revelation, and a tale unfolds of secret identities,
long-lost family, and murky pasts.
