Lucia di Lammermoor (Fifth element remix)

Written by Xavier Gouchet - 21 january 2015 - no comments

Young people these days are truly amazing ! A few years ago, I was surprised to see teenagers singing and simulating the vocoder effect.

This time, a teenage Armenian girl, named Viktoria Hovhanissyan interprets the "Mad Scene" from the Lucia di Lammermoor opera. It's even more impressive when you know that the Inva Mula, the albanian soprano who gives her voice to the Diva Plavalaguna in the film, had to record some voices seperately, which were then mixed later on a computer. When Eric Serra showed her the music sheet, she reportedly said that it was not humanly possible to sing the song as it was written.

While searching around, I found another video of a younger Ukrainian girl performing the same song.
