An Introduction to The Daughter of the Regiment

One of the most delightful comedies to come out of the bel canto period, Donizetti’s The Daughter of the Regiment charms us at every turn. It was one of a number of operas the composer had in production during the 1840 Paris opera season, a feat about which Berlioz declared: “One speaks no more of the operatic stages of Paris: one must speak of the operatic stages of Donizetti!” Join Nicolas Reveles, Director of Education and Outreach for San Diego Opera for a brief discussion of this wonderful opera.
