Performance > This season’s lineup has contrast of comedy and tragedy

By Gina Velasquez

It is time again for opera in Santa Fe.
The Santa Fe Opera is gearing up for five operas for the upcoming season that runs from July to August.
First up is “The Daughter of the Regiment,” a French comedy composed by Gaetano Donizetti. It is the story of Marie, the beloved mascot of the 21st Infantry. Found as an infant on the battlefield, Marie grows up in the military life. Stage director Ned Canty compares the story to “a delicious meal that has been stripped of one ingredient after another until not even the entire dessert is left, just whipped cream.”
“The cast is comprised of professional stage actors and singers and that is important,” said Daniel Zillmann, director of public relations.
The opera is sung in French. Zillmann would like to point out that each seat contains a translator box in English and in Spanish.
Soprano Anna Christy and Tenor Alek Shrader lead the cast.
To hear insights from Canty and Shrader can be seen at YouTube.com/TheSantaFeOpera.
“The Daughter of the Regiment” runs July 3, 8, 11, 17 and 24, and Aug. 3, 8, 12, 20, 26 and 29.
