Turns out that experience prepared him for the world of opera, as he has honed his craft, taken the lessons learned from drunken parents and the dedication it takes to focus on detail. turning himself into one of the most dynamic young tenors in global opera. His story is one of refusing to believe in luck, taking care of the instrument he’s been given, and giving back to future generations with a program designed to forge a new generation of artists.
