The Daughter of the Regiment seems to burst over with Gallic wit and charm. It tells a tale of young love--frustrated, then victorious--and gave the composer Donizetti ample chances to write military rhythms, pastoral mood music, and passionate love exchanges, as well as to create a role that any prima donna would fight to perform. The story centers on the waif Marie, who is adopted by a French army regiment, falls in love with a Tyrolean youth called Tonio, but is carried off to live with the Marquise of Berkenfeld, who plans to turn her into a genteel lady and marry her to an aristocrat. But at the final curtain, the Marquise (who turns out to be her long-lost mother) relents and lets her marry Tonio.
This Australian Opera production was praised as such: "Dame Joan Sutherland has made the cute heroine Marie as much her own as the tragic Lucia. Sutherland tossed off the soprano's florid runs and trills like a lark ascending while romping around the stage with the tongue-in-cheek nonchalance of a born comedian. The supporting cast was splendid both vocally and histrionically." --The Australian. "The Daughter of the Regiment is purely opera as entertainment. However, it does demand exceptionally fine singing. On both counts, for vocal splendor and for entertainment, it succeeds admirably." --Canberra Times
