Art Picks: The Daughter Of The Regiment

Art Picks: The Daughter Of The Regiment

The little opera company that could has turned its annual outdoor show at the Mill City ruins into one of the must-see shows of the summer. Mill City Opera’s secret formula includes light comedic operas that are judiciously trimmed, sumptuously produced and expertly sung by top-shelf talent. This year is no different. The opera is Donizetti’s French and fluffy Daughter of the Regiment, with gorgeous soprano Leah Partridge in the lead role of Marie, and the opera world’s reigning “blond hunk” Chad Johnson as her love interest, Tonio.
