Lecturer Mark Tiarks discusses Donizetti's La Fille du Regiment scheduled for broadcast at the Lensic that morning at 11:00 am.
The cost of the lecture is $5.00 and an array of coffees, teas and pastries may be purchased from 8:00 am at Iconik Coffeeshop.
La Fille du Regiment is a frothy comedy that mixes humor with a rush of buoyant melody and notorious vocal challenges. The story concerns a young orphan girl raised by an army regiment as their mascot and begins at the moment of her first stirrings of love. Complications (and comedy) ensue when her true identity is discovered.
