C'est bon de te revoir - it’s good to see you again! Welcome back to Daughter of the Regiment Week on Kids Commute - music appreciation for kids from Interlochen Public Radio. This week, we’re listening to selections from Gaetano Donizetti’s opera, “La Fille du Régiment”, or “The Daughter of the Regiment”. Yesterday, we met a very fancy lady stopped by French troops in the Austrian mountains. Today, we meet the sergeant of the 21st regiment, who turns out to be surprisingly polite, to the surprise of the fancy Marquise we met yesterday. We are also introduced to Marie. Find out why this girl is so special as we listen to “Ah bruit de la guerre”/”Amid the din of battle”. Keep listening after the music, and we’ll give you a hint to this week’s Kids Commute Quizlet. Text us the correct answer, and we’ll send you a Kids Commute Prize Pack. We hope you’re enjoying Daughter of the Regiment Week on Kids Commute from Interlochen Public Radio.
