“Daughter of the Regiment”

May 10 2015 @ 2:00 pm

Soprano Lisette Oropesa has a dual challenge in Pittsburgh: She’s performing the role of Maria in Daughter of the Regiment with the Pittsburgh Opera—and she’ll also be running the Pittsburgh Marathon. Oropesa is singing for the first time in the title role of a young woman raised by a regiment of soldiers, but it’ll be the sixth marathon for the seasoned runner. Star tenor Lawrence Brownlee plays alongside her as love-struck Tonio, who joins the regiment to be with Maria, only for her to be promised to someone else. His role includes the famous aria “Ah, my friends” (“Ah, mes amis”), requiring no less than nine high Cs. Donizetti’s romantic comedy is sung in English and conducted by Antony Walker. 2 p.m. Ends today. Benedum Center, 237 7th St., Cultural District.
