About the Show/Event
Information for La Fille Du Regiment at Royal Opera House, West End (Opera or Operetta). As a baby, the beautiful Marie was found on a battlefield and adopted, not by one soldier but by an entire regiment. When she falls - quite literally - into the arms of Tonio, her military fathers are not keen to sanction the marriage. Andy why is the Marquise de Berkenfeld so suspiciously keen to make a high-society match of her own for Marie? The fun of this exuberant comedy is in the dramatic twists and the tuneful music en-route to the happy ending. Sung in French with English surtitles.
Approximate runtime 165minutes (including any interval).
