What an amazing night at the Sydney Opera House hearing Jessica Pratt debut as Lucia in Lucia di Lammermoor - it was nothing short of exhilarating! Her sureness, her clarity, her power, the beauty of her voice... I’m so proud to have created a dessert, La Dolce Jessica, in her honour. And, my great friend Matt Moran has had his pastry chef at Aria create a 21 st century version of my country style recipe that will be served every night at Aria until the end of July for the entire run of Lucia di Lammermoor.
It was made even more special for me that my friend Eva Kong, who is ‘cover’ for Jessica, sat with us for the performance to experience it together. I have to be the luckiest person ever to both hear Jessica sing and to know she is as beautiful a person as her voice.
I'm still riding a high from such a spectacular night so please, if you have the opportunity to get there, I couldn't recommend it more highly!
Until next time, Maggie.
