We challenged Jared to a 30-second interview. Here is what he told us:
 
Q: What is your favorite opera?
A: Tosca by Puccini
 
Q: Who is your favorite singer?
A: Robert Merrill
 
Q: What are your dream roles?
A: Iago in Verdi’s Otello and Scarpia in Puccini’s Tosca
 
Q: What was your favorite singing experience so far or your favorite role that you have performed?
A: My favorite singing experience was during Verdi's Falstaff, in which I sang Ford. It was such an incredibly tight ensemble of a cast which made the performances so much more special and alive.

A: It combines all of my passions: acting, languages, and music.
 
Q: What is your favorite flavor of icecream?
A: Mint chocolate chip
 
Q: What else should we know?
