La Fille du Régiment

We saw the final show of the Met's Live in HD for the season on Saturday: La Fille du Régiment. It was a complete delight.

Instead of a review, I want to show you a little clip from the production. Here is Natalie Dessay as Marie, the orphan girl adopted by the 21st regiment, singing their "theme song." It's totally adorable (especially the high fives!). Also check out this clip of Juan Diego Florez singing the famous tenor aria...he's unbelievable (skip to the end to hear the famous 9 high Cs, but watch the beginning to see how he's not marching in opposition...cute!).
