The opera tells the story of a young love that fails first and then triumphs. The simple action is hardly taken seriously. But it offers the composer what he needs for a successful opera, namely ample opportunity for lively-rhythmic music, sometimes military, sometimes dance-like, sometimes romantic.

The work lives from the contrast between the "false" world of the nobility and the "honest" and "down to earth" world of the military. This becomes clear musically, especially in the "vocal hour scene" at the beginning of the second act. (Concertante performance)

Featuring: Sabine Devieilhe, Javier Camarena, Pietro Spagnoli, Liliana Nikiteanu, Birgit Karin Steinegger
