The Daughter of the Regiment
The Daughter of the Regiment, Marie, must choose between social status and love, as she falls for Tonio, but must leave to be introduced to society. Good thing she has an army of “dads” to her rescue.
Opera Orlando is in the army now, as it closes its Opera Everlasting season with Donizetti’s hilarious The Daughter of the Regiment. Enjoy this family-friendly tale about Marie, the eponymous “daughter” of the regiment. She was orphaned as an infant, but miraculously adopted and raised by a French army regiment not knowing of her noble birthright.
It’s a show of equal parts comedy, romance, and vocal fireworks led by stage director Andrew Nienaber and featuring the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Johsua Horsch. Internationally-acclaimed Puerto Rican soprano Camille Ortiz makes her Opera Orlando debut in the title role of Marie, and she is joined by Orlando native and Metropolitan Opera National Competition winner Carlos Enrique Santelli who takes on the role of Tonio and the famous aria “Ah mes amis…” with no less than 9 high C’s. Bass-baritone Peter Strummer returns to Orlando in the buffo role of Sergeant Sulpice, and mezzo-soprano Jenni Bank makes her Company debut in the role of The Marquise of Birkenfield, with members of the Opera Orlando Chorus and dancers from Orlando Ballet rounding out the cast.
