Sun, 9 June - 1:00 PM

Jaunty military tunes, brisk comic numbers, enormously graceful ensembles and sparkling arias. A feast of bel canto vocal fireworks set during World War I.

Donizetti’s frothy comedy mixes humour with a rush of buoyant melody and notorious vocal challenges - including the show-stopping tenor aria Ah! Mes amis with its nine high Cs.

The story 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 in an uninhibited way.

Tenor Javier Camarena and soprano Pretty Yende team up as Tonio and Marie. Maurizio Muraro plays the comic Sergeant Sulpice, with mezzo-soprano Stephanie Blythe as the outlandish Marquise of Berkenfield.Film and stage actress Kathleen Turner plays the non-singing role of the Duchess of Krakenthorp. Enrique Mazzola conducts.

A co-production of the Metropolitan Opera; the Royal Opera, Covent Garden, London; and the Wiener Staatsoper, Vienna.

Captured live at the Metropolitan Opera House, New York.

Sung in French with English subtitles.

This is a screening.
