Doctor Karaoke #1

Our first "Dr. Karaoke" singalong feature is Sganarelle's celebratory tune from the big "examination" scene at the center of the opera. The crude but resourceful lumberjack has just figured out that he can easily pass himself off as a great doctor, having just wowed the crowd with a brilliant diagnosis. In the original three-act version of the show, this scene comes in the middle of Act II, but we've reorganized the opera into two acts so that this wonderful sextet is the Act I finale. The tune is also featured in the overture.

More Karaoke coming on Monday. Don't forget to visit the Doctor in Spite of Himself homepage.
