Carmen Video: Behind The Scenes - Youth Chorus

The children’s chorus in Carmen—albeit so cute they melt your heart—has a tough job each night as they perform very challenging music. This video follows their progress in vocal coachings, to costume fittings, to delivering top-notch performances in rehearsals.

Learn more about Carmen on the Seattle Opera website.

I'm wondering why the children are being taught to use a rolled "R" when that's not a part of standard French pronunciation

Jonathan Dean said...

Sung French pronunciation is different in several important ways from spoken...the 'r'-sound moves, for better projection, and terminal 'e'-s become full syllables in their own right: when the tenor gets to the final word in the phrase "La fleur que tu m'avais jetée", for example, he sings three notes because it's a 3-syllable word: je-té-e.
