Laurent Pelly’s fabulously entertaining production of La Fille Du Règiment wonderfully combines great performance, stylish design and irreverently witty production.

In this first revival of the 2007 hit production of La Fille Du Règiment, Bruno Campanella once more conducts Donizetti’s lively and memorable masterpiece to bring out all its undeniable lyrical charm. Many of the original cast return for their roles, so Natalie Dessay will once more be singing coloratura while ironing the regimental smalls; just one of a host of musical and stage moments from start to finish that has had the audience laughing out loud.

The story of La Fille Du Règiment has all the elements of comic coincidence and timely discovery as our tomboy heroine is forced into more ladylike circles suitable to her aristocratic birth. But while a judicious society wedding may be the intention of some, this heroine is far too spirited to give in to any wishes but those of her own heart.

La Fille Du Règiment is performed in French with English surtitles.
