I attended LA FILLE DU REGIMENT staring Natalie Dessay and Juan Diego Florez with two friends -
both who had seen MET productions 40 years ago [during the height of the "park and bark" period]. They saw "Marie" stand stock still wearing a dress with full crinoline at the back of the regiment of soldiers during her arias. What a huge change in opera to have these phenomenal singing and ACTING artists romp their way through this most exacting [read terrifying to mere mortals] Donizetti. Dessay ironed clothes, threw herself on piles of laundry, peeled potatoes, and totally flew into Florez' arms at one point; she finally saw a dress in the second act. Give yourself and kids the chance to experience great opera. No tears in this one. Definitely a "MUST GO!"
