La fille du régiment (The Daughter of the Regiment) is an opéra comique in two acts by Gaetano Donizetti. Written while the composer was living in Paris, the French libretto is by Jules-Henri Vernoy de Saint-Georges and Jean-François Bayard. A slightly different Italian-language version (in translation by Callisto Bassi) was adapted to the tastes of the Italian public.
