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.
In singing, you cannot 'cheat' if you want to give emotions to those who are listening. You must have something to tell.
