At The Opera, Donizetti: La fille du regiment (The Daughter of the Regiment), February 13, 2016

  

La fille du régiment (The Daughter of the Regiment) is an opéra comique in two acts by Gaetano Donizetti, set to a French libretto by Jules-Henri Vernoy de Saint-Georges and Jean-François Bayard. It was first performed on February 11, 1840 by the Paris Opéra-Comique.

As La fille, it quickly became a popular success, partly because of the famous aria "Ah! mes amis, quel jour de fête!", which requires of the tenor no fewer than nine high Cs.
