Teatro Regio di Torino Foundation Presents

“ Opera Season 2023 ”
The Fille du régiment, a very successful French work by Gaetano Donizetti, will be staged at Teatro Regio of Turin from 13 to 23 May 2023, in a new one staging co-produced with the Teatro La Fenice in Venice.

Written to Paris in 1840, The daughter of the regiment is a work as entertaining as it is demanding, an irresistible masterpiece that combines a succession of brilliant marches, witty episodes and vocal numbers of astounding virtuosity, such as Tonio's famous aria 'Ah! Mes amis' with its nine do of chest.

The work of the composer from Bergamo arrives on the stage of the Regio in the brilliant and imaginative staging of the celebrated duo Beards & Doucet, who signs direction, sets and costumes mixing real and surreal elements with humor; the lights are of Guy Simard and the video direction is by Guido Salsili.

On the podium he will go up Evelino Pidò, ambassador of romantic opera and bel canto in the world, leading a cast of repertoire specialists: the soprano Giuliana Gianfaldoni as Marie, the great American tenor John Osborn in Tonio's; the mezzo-soprano Manuela Custer plays the Marchioness of Berkenfield and baritone Roberto de Candia it will be Sulpice. In the role of Marie for some performances she will sing Caterina Sala, in Tony's Pablo Martínez. The cast is completed with Lorenzo Battagion is Riccardo Mattiotto in the role of corporal; Alejandro Escobar is Andrea Antognetti in that of a farmer. The Choir of the Regio is taught by Andrew Secchi.

Special participation for Arthur Brachetti in the role of the Duchess of Krackentorp, a cameo character who will be able to enhance the talents of the artist, a true icon of international transformism. «I'm very curious to face this new experience in a magnificent theater like the Regio – commented Brachetti – It was here in fact that I had my first encounter with opera, as an adolescent, as an extra: the bullfighter in Carmen. I was already fascinated by the world of entertainment but the experience on stage, in the midst of music, artists, the great stage machine, gave a fundamental contribution to what later became my artistic path.
