Post Roles and voice parts
Can anyone tell me the list of female roles in this show for mezzos or altos? And possibly a little bit about the personality of the character? Thanks!

Hi. Basically there are only two singing parts in the show for women, Nellie is the mezzo/sop and Bloody Mary is an Alto.

I was asking about these two parts recently and there is information on this thread.

Good Luck.

Bloody Mary is in no way a mezzo soprano. She sings Alto.

Just using what I found on some website that I cant remember. Its not very reliable, Hlaf the characters were written in the wrong gender.

no. Bloody Mary is indeed a Mezzo role. listen to Bali Hai in its original key sung by Juanita Hall.
