I had met him again this past winter in NY in a concert after hearing him in Palm Beach as Lodovico in Otello about 7 years ago and realized that he had “grown up” from the 28 year old that I heard back then. He came to Berlin to sing and consult with me this past January and I decided then that he was a bass-baritone rather than bass and that I wanted to guide his career…and such are the fates!!! :)) Enjoy his appearance at the gala!!!
