Encounter of Santander
"O tranquillo soggiorno"
Leigh Melrose, guest professor
Raquel Del Pino Herranz, student
Madalit Lamazares, accompanying pianist
Professor Melrose comments with the student the character of this scene and they describe the role of Aldimira and the best way to express her mood. He then corrects the entrance: it is better not to hurry up, enjoying the previous silence. Afterwards, Professor Melrose makes some comments on expressiveness and color regarding the feelings of the opera character. They also work on the role portrayal and on the performance of the scene that she is singing.
Finally, there are some indications about the text and pronunciation, the accents and phrasing –regarding what the singer is saying; and about breathing, among others.
