We challenged Peter to a 30-second interview. Here is what he told us:
 
Q: What is your favorite opera?
A:Tosca by Puccini.
 
Q: Who are your favorite singers?
A: Rolando Villazón, Juan Diego Flórez, Diana Damrau.
 
Q: What are your dream roles?
A: Rodolfo in La bohème, Candide in Candide, and Cavaradossi in Tosca (someday!)
 
Q: What was your favorite singing experience so far or your favorite role that you have performed?
A: Camille in Die lustige Witwe.
 
Q: What do you love about opera?
A: Every time I have sung when an infant was present, the child would stop what he/she was doing, or 'saying,' and stare at me mesmerized.  I love that opera has the power to reach every one of us on a level we may not even be able to articulate.
Q: What is your favorite flavor of icecream?
A:Dulce de leche.
 
Q: What else should we know?
A: I was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, but grew up most of my life in Budapest, Hungary.
