The Daughter of the Regiment

Love is a battlefield.
Marie is no ordinary canteen girl. Adopted and raised by a squadron of French soldiers and unaware of her aristocratic lineage, this spunky young woman falls for a handsome villager. But when her past comes to whisk her away, will she fall in line or follow her heart? A laugh-out-loud hit, Donizetti’s romantic comedy mixes hilarious hijinks with vocal pyrotechnics in this witty and heartwarming production.

The Daughter of the Regiment has romance, humor, vocal pyrotechnics—and one of the most unique roles in the repertoire, the Duchess of Krakenthorp. This cameo role has a storied history of portrayal by actors and public figures (including late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader-Ginsburg and Golden Girl Bea Arthur). In MN Opera’s production, the role of the Duchess of Krakenthorp will be performed by American drag queen Monét X Change, instantly familiar to any RuPaul’s Drag Race fan. Don’t miss Monét X Change!

Sung in French with English captions projected above the stage. Costumes created by Washington National Opera Costume Studio.

Themes

  • In this story, Marie grows up with a group of soldiers who raised her as an orphan. One could consider this a chosen family, people who aren't related but choose to be in each others lives and care for each other. Are there people in your life that you consider chosen family? 
This performance is suitable for ages 11 and older.
