Met Opera Summer Encore: La Fille du Regiment

Stage on Screen is The Roxy’s ongoing series of the world’s greatest contemporary theatrical performances, from the Metropolitan Opera to London’s National Theatre to the Bolshoi Ballet and beyond, projected on the big screen

In this encore performance from 2008, madcap comedy and impeccable coloratura come together in Natalie Dessay’s indelible portrayal of the feisty tomboy Marie, raised by a regiment of French soldiers. Tenor Juan Diego Flórez stars alongside her as the young Swiss villager who conquers her heart—and a slew of high Cs—in Laurent Pelly’s charming staging. Marco Armiliato conducts.


Madcap physical comedy and impeccable coloratura come together for Natalie Dessay’s indelible portrayal of the feisty tomboy raised by a regiment of French soldiers. Juan Diego Flórez is the young Swiss villager who conquers her heart—and a slew of high Cs. Also featuring uproarious performances by Felicity Palmer and Alessandro Corbelli, as well as a cameo by Tony Award winner Marian Seldes, this laugh-out-loud production was a runaway hit that left audiences exhilarated.
