Groβer Erfolg der “Regimentstochter’
“Zu einem rundum gelungenen Abend wurde der Beginn der Spielzeit 93/94 des Gieβener Stadttheaters mit Gaetano Donizettis komischer Oper in der Inszenierung von Nicholas Muni. Im schräg angeordneten, von Glasfenstern umgebenen Bühnenbild von Peter Werner spielten sich dramatische Kriegs-, Liebes-, und Erkennungsszenen ab, die von der excellenten Lichtregie Martin Jedryas hervorragend unterstützt wurden.”
Boris Rupp, Gieβener Anzeiger

Production Description: This production is set during World War I, the French characters sing and speak in French, the German characters in German with numerous, often humorous, efforts on the part of all characters to communicate in the opposite language. As this production was first presented for a German public, the dual-language format had the effect of distancing the public from the French characters in terms of language but drawing them closer via direct emotions and vice-versa with the German-speaking characters. The entire story plays out in a large glass case, representing the “heart” of the Marquise who had buried her emotions long ago and blocked out the world, including the horrors of war.
