Today’s selection is “Au secours de notre fille”/”Our daughter needs our help,” sung by a chorus of French soldiers. They want to help Marie marry Tonio, over the Marquise’s objections. She reveals Marie is really her long lost daughter, and she should marry a man more proper than a soldier from the army.
