La Vivandière: Or True To The Corps! is a burlesque by W. S. Gilbert, described by the author as "An Operatic Extravaganza Founded on Donizetti's Opera, La figlia del regimento."[1] In the French or other continental armies a vivandière was a women who supplied food and drink to troops in the field.[2]

The piece was first produced at St. James's Hall, Liverpool, on 15 June 1867.[3] It was then presented in London, with a mostly new cast, at the Queen's Theatre, Long Acre, on 22 January 1868. It was part of a series of operatic burlesques and other broad comic pieces that Gilbert wrote in the late 1860s near the beginning of his playwriting career. It was modestly successful and introduced some themes and satiric techniques that Gilbert would later employ in his famous Savoy operas.[4]
