Post Maria's Highest Notes?
Hello, my school will be putting on a performance of West Side story next spring and I Maria is one of my dream roles. So, I wanted to know what some of her highest notes are:

- What is her last note in Tonight (Balcony Scene)?

- What is her last note in A Boy Like That / I Have A Love?

- What is her last note in Tonight (Quintet)?

Also, if I don't get Maria, I would want to sing Somewhere, which is my favorite song in the show and I was wondering what the last note in that song in as well as what is the range required for that song?

Thanks!

Maria's a soprano. The girl that sings "Somewhere" is a mezzo-soprano, topping out at, I believe, an F-sharp. I don't remember all the specifics of Marias' songs, but "A Boy Like That" goes up to either a B-flat or a B, and her last note in the Tonight quintet is a C.

Thanks for the info. Looks like I'll have to work on getting the High C, haha.
