PART 2, DAY 2 :: This aria is literally a manifestation of vocal registration. This section starts in the heavy, Verdian middle range, goes down to the low range, and then works its way slowly into the upper middle and dramatic high range. It's insane the way it utilizes all three parts of the voice in such a seamless, dramatic climax.
This is either full of obstacles or opportunity. My training is deeply rooted in sternum connection, expanding the lower laryngeal muscles, releasing the neck, opening the back pharynx, and closing the cords. Incidentally, in the same way I find no real issue navigating these registration changes, I have never worked with a student, including female, whom couldn't quickly manage similarly seamless register changes via the same goals and tools. When the throat is truly open, the body connected, and the voice exercised in the right ways, the larynx will pivot smoothly.
The real difficulty in Verdi is managing this seamlessness 100% of the time in unforgiving range and power. I feel so grateful to my teacher for the tools to manage this so successfully even while I'm still . I wish all of you the best in searching for your own vocal freedom. 💫✨☄️⛄️❄️☃️☄️✨💫
