Enjoy Donizetti’s classic opera, La Fille Du Regiment, a romantic tale about Marie, a woman raised by a troop of soldiers who attempts to convince them to let her marry Tonio, a peasant she has fallen in love with. Depending on which part of the performance captivates your interest, you can stop by for a pre-show talk with a musicologist to explore the composer’s perspective and learn about the creative process and historical background of the show or stay for an post-show discussion with the singers and creative team. The performance will be new one for the Washington National Opera, so make sure to pay a visit to see this production’s DC debut at the beautiful Kennedy Center.
