i am most excited for this musical number i think

What’s a favorite musical moment in Amelie? Young Amelie’s story has got more of a fantasy feel, like how a child would see things. As the story matures, the music matures, which I love. The moment I first enter as adult Amelie, it goes from whimsical, beautiful music into real life – very rhythmical, with great percussion. It’s called “What Am I Waiting For?” That was the most challenging number to master, but it’s probably my favorite. Everybody is in the café, singing together but on their own rhythms – some are slower, some are faster. I think it reflects the monotonous tone of everyday work, and it’s a really blunt shift into, this is who she is now.
