Thank you for following along with us today. In the final moments of the opera, we welcome Marguerite into heaven in this stunning final chorus. We love singing this score and are so glad we got to share a bit of it with you. This work brings us closer together as an ensemble. It needs 100% buy in from the chorus, everyone needs to be of one mind. We’re a group of individuals but here we have to be one voice. And without costumes or staging (how Berlioz originally intended this piece to be experience), we have to work extra hard to communicate our characters. We use our voices, faces, and especially our eyes to tell this incredible story.
A big thank you to our friends in the @metorchestra for your beautiful playing, to the @metkids for your lovely singing, and t everyone here at the Met! We hope you come see the show!
