About this show

In Donizetti's masterful opéra comique, an orphaned canteen girl falls for a handsome peasant—though her soldier "fathers" and a mysterious marquise have other plans for her. Military might meets aristocratic delight in this stylish new production, which blends instantly hummable melodies and flag-waving anthems with innocent romance and slapstick faux pas.
