There is one single female character in the entire film. She has plenty of dialogue (and a name) but absolutely every other character is male - from the principal cast onward.

There aren't even any other women in the background. There is a large troupe of (male) dancers, plus five hundred little boys (hence the "5,000 fingers") but no women or girls anywhere.

The whole thing is meant to be a little boy's fantasy about his tyrannical piano teacher. I guess he's too young to be interested in girls!
