Music show: Star soprano Barbara Hannigan, Snoop Dogg & Meshell Ndegeocello

Whether she’s singing, conducting or doing both at the same time, Barbara Hannigan is a force to be reckoned with. Fresh from clinching a Classical Grammy, the Canadian soprano and conductor returns to the Paris Opera for a string of performances in Francis Poulenc’s "La Voix Humaine" ("The Human Voice"). She talks to Richelle Harrison Plesse about musical multi-tasking, her love for the Palais Garnier and discovering the raps and rhymes of Kendrick Lamar.
