We challenged Lorenzo to a 30-second interview. Here is what he told us:
 
Q: What is your favorite opera?
A: Il trovatore by Giuseppe Verdi.
 
Q: Who are your favorite singers?
A: Angela Meade, Matthew Polenzani, and Nicolai Gedda.
 
Q: What are your dream roles?
A: Ernesto (Don Pasquale) and Alfredo (La traviata).
 
Q: What was your favorite singing experience so far or your favorite role that you have performed?
A: Ferrando in Cosi fan tutte.
 
Q: What do you love about opera?
A:I love the poetry aspect of opera.  I love the syntax and the elegance of words used to convey emotion.  The way people communicated back then with their actions and words spewed out more emotion and passion.  I love imagining/portraying how they might have acted and related to one another with their use of words.  The elegant words used, along with the beautiful melody line the composer provides, create an explosive feeling of excitement and passion; an indescribable feeling.
 
Q: What is your favorite flavor of icecream?
A:Mint chocolate.
 
Q: What else should we know?
A:I love the taste of strong, burnt coffee…jet fuel I like to call it.
