A:Parsifal, by Wagner.
 
Q: Who are your favorite singers?
A:  Carlo Bergonzi, Jonas Kaufmann and Ferruccio Furlanetto.
 
Q: What are your dream roles?

Q: What was your favorite singing experience so far or your favorite role that you have performed?
A: Singing Azael in Bare Opera's production of L'enfant prodigue, by Debussy.
 
Q: What do you love about opera?

Q: What is your favorite flavor of icecream?
A:Sea salt caramel (in my freezer right now).
 
Q: What else should we know?
A:I’m a great lover of Science Fiction and Physics.
