In a random act of culture, Parisians in the lavish shopping mall Beaugrenelle were treated to young musical prodigies suddenly performing the prelude to Carmen by George Bizet. As crowds gathered, a chorus joined in to finish the performance, singing the famous Toreador.
The flash mob, conducted in late October, was created by television network France 2, in a creative promotion for their PRODIGES show, which will air Dec. 27, a program that focuses on exceptional talent in dance, music and song.
