In this encore performance from 2008, madcap physical comedy and impeccable coloratura come together in Natalie Dessay’s indelible portrayal of the feisty tomboy Marie, raised by a regiment of French soldiers. Tenor Juan Diego Flórez stars alongside her as the young Swiss villager who conquers her heart—and a slew of high Cs—in Laurent Pelly’s charming staging.
