The Met Opera Live in HD: La Fille du Régiment
March 2 @ 9:55 am - 1:30 pm$28
This frothy comedy mixes humor with a rush of buoyant melody and notorious vocal challenges. The opera concerns a young orphan girl raised by an army regiment as their mascot and begins at the moment of her first stirrings of love. Complications (and comedy) ensue when her true identity is discovered. The action is startlingly simple and unencumbered by intricate subplots, allowing the full charm of the characters and their virtuosic music to come across uninhibited.
