Professor Melrose explains the interpretation and expression required for this aria. Special care should be taken in the solemn passage. Another fragment has to be articulated as a dance. Professor Melrose insists on the importance of paying attention to the text and its expressiveness, underlining the significance of certain words. He also explains to the student how to express changes in this character’s thinking, as well as how to use the energy when the passage requires more vigour.
