A LIGHT-HEARTED opera -The Daughter of the Regiment - is set to come to the attention of audiences at the Gordon Craig Theatre in Stevenage.

Swansea City Opera will tell the story of an orphan, Marie, who is adopted by a regiment.

She entertains the soldiers and enjoys their company.

Then she falls in love with Tonio, a country boy who saves her from falling off a cliff and he enlists as a soldier for her sake.

But there are plans for Marie to enter into an arranged marriage with a Duke.

With a combination of dramatic tension and superb musical verve, it is a delightful opera.
