  1. I'm excited for him and a little envious as well. I hope he has a long and happy career. Do you think he might benefit from this interview? He sounds fairly grounded (avoiding Verdi now, thank goodness!) but one never knows. Everything has to be so "now" these days. ..... Best wishes!

  2. Great posts. My friends referred your blog to me. Looks like everyone knows about it, just me, until now. Definetely going to read your other posts. Thanks for sharing with us.

  3. Gorgeous! And only 19! Pleeeease, sing Billy Budd as soon as vocally possible! <3 There's so few Billys who are perfect and Imbrailo can't clone himself to be everywhere.

    Man, I'd LOVE to be in Claggart's place when this bishounen sings Billy! And I'm not being a pervy old (26!) woman since here 18 is legal age. :D
