First, Professor Leigh Melrose points out that the student should hold the first phrase. They then talk about expressiveness and about how to better show the character's emotional moment in this aria. Afterwards, they work on phrasing and on the pronunciation of some words. In general, Professor Melrose advises the student to be more open. At the end of the masterclass, the student asks a technical question to improve the control of the tongue and Professor Melrose recommends him to maintain the mouth as relaxed as possible. It could be useful to practice in front of the mirror but without getting obsessed or feeling inhibited about this issue.
