On the lighter side, in the "Urchin's Chorus" from Carmen, a youth chorus imitated their impression of soldiers. This elicited laughter and applause from the audience. Laughter also ensued during "Non piu andrai" from Le Nozze di Figaro as Cherubino groaned under the weight of a backpack, gun, and sword as he prepared for what life in the military would be like.
The inclusion of the Lyric Opera Children's Chorus as well as members of the Fort Leavenworth Community Chorus at various parts during the performance were also notable aspects of this unique evening.
