‘The Morning Show’ Director Mimi Leder on ‘Operatic’ Season Finale (SPOILERS)
“It’s always challenging to get emotions right — like the moment where Alex walks out of Fred’s office and has agreed to let Chip go. It was written for an elevator hallway, but I found this escalator and wanted to put it on that so they were forced to look at each other when they crossed. It just felt so metaphorical — two people going in different directions. And then to put the opera against it, it just felt like they were both crying — very beautiful and painful,” Leder says.
“You’re constantly walking that wire — the believability wire. You’re in these characters’ heads and arcing out where they’re high and where they’re low, and there’s a lot of emotional characters being at the breaking point in this finale. And then it bursts. And that’s what any good opera will do.”

It turns out that I’m the background music in this beautiful scene with Jennifer Anniston and Mark Duplass for the season finale of The Morning Show 🎉 I love that Mimi Leder is using classical vocal music on the show! The aria is Malinconia, ninfa gentile by Vincenzo Bellini and Vincenzo Scalera is playing the piano #themorningshow #jenniferaniston #jessicapratt #backgroundmusic #soundtrack #serenade #classicalmusic #classicalvoice #lifegoals #superexcited
Lucia is one of those roles that always leaves me covered in bruises... I think I fall or get thrown to the floor five times in this show! Here Lucia has just half fainted at the arrival of her lover Edgardo at her forced wedding to Arturo ... towering over me is Andrei Kymach, my dominating brother Enrico in this beautiful production by @Nicola Berloffa Ópera de Oviedo #luciaovd #luciadilammermoor #scottish #kilt #weddinggonewrong
So... I have a question for my fellow opera singers and a fun fact for the public... I faint or nearly faint at most costume fittings and have done so since the beginning of my career ... does anyone else have this problem? Any tips for staying conscious? I’ve tried tea/coffee, going up and down on tip toes and sitting between dresses etc...

Our house was always noisy and messy. Mum and Dad loved to host big dinners and Mum would take in anybody who needed help.
When I was 11, our family moved to Australia from Bristol [England] to be closer to my maternal grandmother, who was already living here.
Moving halfway across the world was rather traumatic for me and my siblings [brother Daniel, 39, and sister Gemma, 34]. We bonded because it really felt like us versus the world. We moved houses five times – from Toowoomba to Brisbane and then Sydney – before I decided to move to Italy 15 years ago to pursue opera.
What would you do to make a difference in the world?
I think that the arts are extremely important today as we live in a world in which individuals become more connected but more isolated everyday. When people come to a live show they get to experience something as a group, it fosters a sense of community and empathy and I think that is a small way that we as artists can make a difference in the world.
Jessica Pratt is an Australian girl made good earning an amazing reputation in around the world. Jessica is home to make her Sydney Opera House debut in "Lucia di Lammermoor", and, like the great Dame Nellie Melba, Jessica also had a dessert made in her honour...
