Full of wit and invention, Donizettis comic opera is a delight. Bel canto stars Pretty Yende and Javier Camarena take on the challenging vocal fireworks in Laurent Pellys hilarious staging.Orphaned as a small child and raised by an entire army regiment, the spirited Marie has grown up as the regiments 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.
