Hello, konnichi-wa, hola, bonjour... (I could go on, but for your sanity, I won't.)

STORIES THAT ARE TAKING FAR TOO LONG TO UPDATE:

I am an alto, or what musical theatre people would call mezzo-sopranos. This means I am lower than a soprano. If you haven't noticed, in opera, mezzos almost never have lead roles. So I decided to make a list of musicals with lead altos:
1. Sweeney Todd: Mrs. Lovett
2. Wicked: Elphaba
3. The Lion King: Nala
4. Passion: Fosca
5. Evita: Evita (well, obviously...)
6. Les Miserables: Fantine AND Eponine (they get the most beautiful songs in the show: "I Dreamed a Dream", "On My Own", "A Little Fall of Rain")
7. Oliver!: Nancy
8. Pippin: Catherine
Evidence to support my mezzo campaign:
>If Patti LuPone played the role, it was a part probably written for a contralto/mezzo-soprano. (Mrs. Lovett, Fosca, Nancy, Evita, and Fantine)
>I was complaining to my cousin about the lack of lead mezzos, and she played me a song Nala sings from The Lion King called "Shadowlands." The actress singing it had a lovely low voice.
>If you look at the score for the songs in Sweeney Todd or Les Mis, you will note that songs sung by Mrs. Lovett ("Wait", "By the Sea", "The Worst Pies in London") or by Fantine ("I Dreamed a Dream") or Eponine ("On My Own", "A Little Fall of Rain") are written in the alto range. Same goes for Catherine, Nancy and Elphaba.
Well, that's my list of lead mezzos. This is probably just alto pride fogging my brain, but you know. And besides, there are perks to being an alto. If you sing alto in a choir, you develop a better ear since you have to listen for your inner harmony part. (That's what my voice teacher told me when I was struggling against the soprano part in a song I was working on.)
That's all you need to know about me for now, I suppose... Adios.
