Hawai‘i Opera Theatre: “Daughter of the Regiment”
February 13 at 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm
“It’s a rollicking combination of esprit de corps, slapstick antics and innocent romance — not to mention intoxicating music highlighted by spectacular vocal writing.” —NPR
Donizetti’s hilarious comedy about Marie, the army brat who is raised by a troop of soldiers, is full of brilliant music and vivid vocals. A true tomboy, she has fallen in love with Tonio, a handsome lad who must join the regiment in order to win approval from Marie’s many adopted fathers. Presenting another twist to winning Marie’s hand, the Marquise of Birkenfield arrives on the scene with the secret knowledge that Marie is in fact of aristocratic roots and must marry according to her station. Will Tonio rise to the occasion?
With Audrey Luna, who broke the Metropolitan Opera’s record for the highest note ever sung earlier this year, starring as Marie!
