History

Gaetano Donizetti’s La Fille du Régiment 

La Fille du Régiment (“The Daughter of the Regiment”) premiered at the Opéra Comique in Paris in 1840, one of several works the Italian Donizetti wrote while living in the French capital. A comedy of manners about a young woman who is adopted as an orphan by a regiment of the French Army, its musical highlights include the tenor’s Act I aria “Ah, mes amis,” notorious for its nine high Cs.
