Donizetti evening at the Cotroceni Museum

The Cotroceni National Museum will host tomorrow, on the Woman’s Day, a Donizetti evening with the opera ‘The Daughter of the Regiment,’ featuring Patricia Seymour – soprano, Sorana Negrea-Stoica – mezzo-soprano, Liviu Indricau – tenor, Iustinian Zetea – bass, Adina Cocargeanu – piano. One of the most popular works of Italian composer Gaetano Donizetti, ‘The Daughter of the Regiment’ tells the love story between the daughter of a marchioness and an ordinary soldier. Maria, a newborn girl found on the battlefield, the cherished child spoiled by all the grenadiers, raised by an entire regiment of… fathers, is proved to be the daughter of a marchioness. Her childhood as a regiment child, her love for Tonio, the young man that decides to become a soldier because he loves her, the new life at the castle – everything can be found in this popular opera, which is so enjoyed by public all over the world. The comic opera ‘The Daughter of the Regiment’ premiered at the Opera-Comique of Paris, on 11 February 1840, and enjoyed a long-lasting success that made her a constant presence in the repertoire of many opera houses of the era.
