Opera’s Rising Star | Episode 29
We often think opera singing is for grown-ups only. It requires advanced technical skills and a deep understanding of music and languages. But did you know there have been tons of roles written for children? Very famous examples are the Three Spirits from Mozart’s The Magic Flute. The Spirits, played by children, help guide the main character, Tamino, on his quest to save the princess. Nine-year-old singer, pianist and mega opera fan Emma Moreau recently sang the First Spirit with the Canadian Opera Company. Emma shares her experience working with professional opera singers, upcoming auditions, and sings the Spirit’s solo for us. Watch out for her name in lights!
