resume, the talent discovered by Herbert Von Karajan in the 1970s, the first and only Italian to ever sing Boris Godunov at the Mariinsky, an impeccable gentleman in an increasingly less and less gentlemanly business such as the opera.

What he really wants to be is a professional golfer, as the wonderful people at San Diego Opera, who are lucky enough to have him often there, explain us.
