The American President

The widowed President of the USA invites a woman he likes (Sydney) to a state banquet. They fall in love, but the press turns it into scandal and the opposition leader uses it as an excuse to run down the presidents character. He will not defend his private life to the world and his popularity at the polls plummets. He then loses the love of Sydney when he is forced to get the environment bill that she is campaigning for thrown out (and her fired as a by-product) to defend his own crime bill.

Other mistake: This error occurs during the scene in which the President and Lewis Rothschild are riding in the limo, just after the President has broken a date with Syndney. The background scenery, visible through the windows of the car, is noticeably in slow motion, even though the car (and the people inside it) are moving at regular speed.

Question: When Sydney and the President are having dinner alone at Sydney's place (I think) around Christmastime, there is a beautiful song playing softly in the background. It is being sung by what sounds like two or three sopranos. Does anyone know the name of this song and its composer?

Answer: The aria is "Viens, Mallika" from "Lakmé", composed by Léo Delibes.
