How many altos does it take to screw in a lightbulb?
None, they can’t get that high.
How many sopranos does it take to screw in a lightbulb?
One, she holds it up and waits for the world to revolve around her.
How many singers does it take to screw in a lightbulb?
Two. An alto to actually do it and a soprano to stand by and ask “isn’t that a little high for you?”

”Mary Poppins” written by P.L. Travers, first published in 1934
On opening night of Candide, Leonard Bernstein visited Barbara Cook’s dressing room to offer her his best wishes. Just before departing he said “Oh, by the way, Callas is out front.”
"Thank you very much. I really needed to know that."
"Forget it. She’d kill for your high E flats."
"Glitter and Be Gay" so stopped the show, company member Tom Pyle used to time the ovation every night.
Anecdotes courtesy of the 2003 reissue liner notes. Also, fun singing fact: at Bernstein’s insistence, Cook sang the “H” before every “Ha” in the coloratura section.
