“Chanson” – The Baker’s Wife

Music and Lyrics: Stephen Schwartz

This appealing number sung by a serving woman as she begins her day sets the tone of this fable.  Our story takes place long ago in provincial France and as such, it is sung in both English and French.  A commentary on the motivation behind our daily routines and the unexpectedness of love, the “chanson” (French for “song”) may make you question why you do the things you do today, but it will certainly inspire you to find magic in the ordinary.
