Marie is the daughter of the regiment. Orphaned as an infant, she was adopted and raised by a French army regiment not knowing about her noble past. The military life suits her until she falls for the handsome peasant Tonio. Love-struck for Marie he must join the regiment to be near her, and gain approval from her army of “fathers”. To further complicate matters Marie is whisked away from the regiment by the Marquise of Birkenfeld who knows of her aristocratic lineage and wants to introduce her properly to society. This, of course, upends the regimental order of things, and Marie must then choose between marrying for love or for social status. It’s a show of equal parts comedy, romance, and vocal fireworks.
