WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
As a baby, the beautiful Marie was found on a battlefield and adopted, not by one soldier but by an entire regiment. When she falls - quite literally - into the arms of Tonio, her military fathers are not keen to sanction the marriage. Andy why is the Marquise de Berkenfeld so suspiciously keen to make a high-society match of her own for Marie? The fun of this exuberant comedy is in the dramatic twists and the tuneful music en-route to the happy ending.
Sung in French with English surtitles. Running time: 2hrs 40mins (inclu. one interval)
