I have always tried to perform the music I love, and I think I am lucky because my preferences are often the ones of the public.
The most widely criticised singers in the history of opera, Maria Callas and Franco Corelli, happen also to be the best singers. I am honoured for being part of their group.
When I hear that young people have come to the theater for the first time to listen to opera, I'm very happy. Because it's the same thing that happened to me as a child. When I first heard the tenor voice, I immediately fell in love with this kind of music.
I do not think anyone can ever do anything without the help and will of God.
