The Daughter of the Regiment
The original G.I. Jane
This bright, sparkling comedy follows Marie, a feisty young girl raised by a regiment of French soldiers high in the Alps. Peppered with exhilarating arias, astonishing high notes and outrageous fun, Marie grapples between her patriotic loyalty to her “dear brothers” and the expectations of “polite” society. Coloratura soprano Susannah Biller stars as the title role for Donizetti’s whimsical and hilarious romp.
Biller’s voice is light, sweet, and gorgeous – San Francisco Classical Voice
Running time: 2 hours and 34 minutes including one 30 minute intermission.
Arizona Opera is proud to partner with Phoenix Ballet for this performance of The Daughter of the Regiment.
