We challenged Nicholas to a 30-second interview. Here is what he told us:
Q: What is your favorite opera?
A:My favorite opera will always be La Bohème
Q: Who are your favorite singers?
A: My favorite female singer is Mirella Freni. She has been my singing idol since I was a little boy and was probably my greatest inspiration to become an opera singer. My favorite male opera singer would have to be Bryn Terfel, mostly because I can relate very closely to him as an opera singer. There are many, many more of course.
Q: What are your dream roles?
A: I would love to sink my teeth into Figaro in Le Nozze di Figaro. I can foresee that being a staple role for me, just waiting for my first opportunity to perform the whole role. My dream role would be to sing Onegin in Eugene Onegin.
Q: What was your favorite singing experience so far or your favorite role that you have performed?
A: My favorite role thus far hands down is singing Leporello in Don Giovanni.
Q: What do you love about opera?
A: I consider opera to be the most encompassing performing art. Music, drama, dance, costumes, scenery. It has absolutely everything. Music moves my soul, so to be in a performing art where the music is the star is really the greatest avenue for me to express myself as a singer.
Q: What is your favorite flavor of icecream?
A: My favorite flavor of ice cream is Haagen-Dazs Chocolate Chocolate Chip. :)
Q: What else should we know?
A: I am an Uber Driver, Private Chef, Professional Restaurant Maitre D’, and Wine Connoisseur
