The Diva Dance

Talented Opera Singer Masters the Impossible “Diva Dance” Song

The Fifth Element is one of my  favorite movies. I was thrilled when I discovered that My Modern Met had an interesting article about The Diva Dance, an otherworldly song performed in the movie by an alien opera singer called Diva Plavalaguna. 

It seems that the composer Eric Serra had written the song so that it wouldn’t be possible for a singer to hit some of the high notes so quickly after another. The original song was performed in the movie by the Albanian opera singer Inva Mula-Tchako, and she had to sing those high notes individually; then they were arranged digitally.

Jane Zhang, a Chinese opera singer, took on the challenge and hit all notes without computer help. Listen to her amazing performance, it’ll give you goosebumps!

And here’s the (digitally enhanced) original.
