It’s true. On the other hand, a singer’s resume usually tells the exact range they have. Lying there and being caught in a lie would not be the smartest career move.
But I assume some doesn’t sound as brilliant as they ought to on the high E, and they fiddle with it in studio. Actually pushing it up from a high C or high D is rare exceptions, methinks.
I know so many “sopranos” who say the E6 is the top of their range just so they can get the callback. I don’t think it is such a rare thing for one to exaggerate ones range, not as rare as lying about other things on ones resume. I was told by a teach “Never get caught lying…” meaning “You can lie, just don’t get caught doing it.”
On top of that, the pressure of an audition can have a huge impression on one’s range, something that doesn’t happen to the performer during an actual show but that’s a different story.
Let just say this. NEVER lie about your range just to get into a callback. It is disrespectful of you to the people behind the table, your fellow auditioners, and yourself. I’m sure when someone one says “don’t get caught”, I think they mean something more towards if you’re asked if you can dance, you say yes if you move moderately well. Lying in an audition is the upmost disrespectful thing you can do.
Also the pressure of an audition is abut the same as the pressure to perform. If anything, performing involves more pressure than auditioning, but everyone is different.
Integrity, people. Artistic integrity.
