Gaetano Donizetti (1797–1848) was remarkably productive, composing more than 60 operas plus orchestral and chamber music, in a career abbreviated by mental illness and premature death.
Unlike most operas, which are based on pre-existing literary or historical sources, La Fille du Régiment features an original story developed by the librettists Jules-Henri Vernoy de Saint-Georges (1799 –1875) and Jean-François-Alfred Bayard(1796-1853).
