Is a boy under bar mitzvah permitted to listen to kol Isha?

Question:

There are many Jewish videos created by women (which include acting and often singing). Up until what age (if any) would my boys be able to watch them? Would they be able to watch the acting and the singing? Only the acting?

Answer:

R’ S. Z. Auerbach zt”l ruled that boys from the age of 9 should not listen to women singing. It stands to reason that the age from chinuch not to watch women performing would be the same.
