Odeon Cinema, Waterford. 2nd March @ 5.55 p.m.
Full of wit and invention, Donizetti’s comic opera is a delight. Bel canto stars Pretty Yende & Javier Camarena take on the challenging vocal fireworks in Laurent Pelly’s hilarious staging.
Orphaned as a small child and raised by the entire army regiment, the spirited Marie has grown up as the regiment’s ‘daughter’, raising morale and spreading joy. Tonio, a local man, falls in love with her and even joins the army for her sake. But a chance encounter with a noblewoman sparks a sudden revelation, and a tale unfolds of secret identities, long-lost family, and murky pasts.
