A wonderful cast giving their all in this Donizetti masterpiece
I love The Daughter of the Regiment(aka La Fille Du Regiment) for many reasons, especially for the amazing music. This is an excellent production, I agree the costumes and sets while not horrible are rather cartoon-ish. That said, I would be struggling to be criticising anything else. The video directing is good, as is the staging and lighting, while the orchestra and conducting are spot on. The story is still entertaining and the characters appealing. In a titular role that is absolutely perfect for her, Beverly Sills is just brilliant, William McDonald is a charming Tonio and Spiro Malas(long time, no see) is hilarious.
In conclusion, Donizetti's opera masterpiece is splendidly done here. 9/10 Bethany Cox
