The Daughter of the Regiment by Gaetano Donizetti
Nine high Cs for the tenor in one aria, and brilliant coloratura for the soprano, make The Daughter of the Regiment an exciting, sparkling and hilarious opening to the 2013 Season. This delightful production from
L’ubica Vargicová, described by the New York Times as having “…devilish coloratura with fearless attack” sings Marie with Stephen Costello whose “…polished tenor boasts… command, brightness at the top” (SanDiego.com) singing the nine high Cs. Ewa Podles “…a force of nature…”, (U-T San Diego) is the Marquise of Birkenfeld with Donato DiStefano as Sulpice. Toronto-born conductor, Yves Abel and stage director, Emilio Sagi, make their San Diego Opera debuts.
Sung in French with English translations above the stage.
Performances January 26, 29, February 1 and 3 (matinee)
