Andorra's Marc Canturri performs Mab, la reine des mensonges from Gounod's Roméo et Juliette, in concert five of the 2009 competition.

Roméo and his friend Mercutio have gatecrashed the Capulets' ball in disguise. Mercutio suggests they use the opportunity to create trouble at their enemy's house, but Romeo disagrees, saying that he had a premonition in a dream. In this aria, Mercutio makes light of Roméo's gloom with the tale of Mab, the queen of dreams.
