Marie is a spirited and charming tomboy, adopted and raised by a French army regiment, and she has fallen in love with the handsome Tonio. When she receives new information about her identity, she must decide whether to follow her place in society, or follow her heart. Acclaimed director E. Loren Meeker leads this production of Donizetti’s screwball comedy set among the Swiss Alps.
Andriana Chuchman will sing the role of Marie, and Atlanta Opera Studio alum Santiago Ballerini* will sing the challenging role of Tonio (Including those famous 9 high-Cs!). Ballerini was last seen on the main stage during the 2015-16 season as Tybalt in Romeo and Juliet.
