My real passion is for opera. It was born and developed by listening to records, and my dream as a child was to record entire operas when I grew up, and this dream came true.
When I began singing, it was the first time I was happy in my life. As a baby, I would stop crying when I heard a great singer.
The voice is something very mysterious. It's difficult to say what is inside a voice that moves people.
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.
