''[[Josephine, The Child of the Regiment]]'' is a musical comedy by John Baldwin Buckstone (1802-1879)[].
#REDIRECT [[La Fille du Régiment]]
Also found as ''[[Josephine, The Child of the Regiment, or The Fortune of War]]'' and, somewhat confusingly, as ''[[The Daughter of the Regiment]]''.
==The original text==
The play is in part based on the two act opéra comique[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Op%C3%A9ra_comique], ''[[La fille du régiment]]''[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/La_fille_du_r%C3%A9giment] ("The Daughter of the Regiment") by Gaetano Donizetti ()[]. This was first performed on 11 February 1840 by the Paris Opéra-Comique at the Salle de la Bourse, after which it was translated into Italian and later into English. Buckstone most probably saw it in the English version at the Surrey Theatre, London, on 21 December, 1847. (The Italian version had been played at Her Majesty's Theatre, London,  on 27 May, 1847). 
Buckstone's play was first performed at Theatre Royal, Haymarket and first published in London by [[Thomas Hailes Lacy]] in 1856.
It was later renamed - somewhat confusingly - ''[[The Daughter of the Regiment]]'' by some, (for example it was played with this title on August 19, 1872, by the Rotunda Vaudeville Company in in Liverpool).
==Translations and adaptations==
W.S. Gilbert wrote a [[burlesque]] adaptation of the Donizetti opera, called ''[[La Vivandière]]'', in 1867.
== Performance history in South Africa ==
1885: Performed as ''[[The Daughter of the Regiment]]'' in the [[Theatre Royal]], Cape Town, produced by Mr [[H.C. Sidney]] and partner Mr [[H.J. Fiedler]] during the course of the year.
