    Opera Lively traveled to São Paulo, Brazil, and interviewed five artists from the very dynamic Theatro São Pedro on the occasion of their staging of Condor, written by Brazilian opera composer from the 19th century Carlos Gomes. We take advantage of the occasion to get to know several fascinating topics about the state of opera in Brazil, both in the past and presently. Our 200th interview was with the greatest name of Brazilian opera, maestro Luis Fernando Malheiro. Read it [here]; it's really, truly a must-read, containing gorgeous pictures of Brazilian productions and extremely interesting comments, such as how the maestro got to stage Wagner’s Ring cycle for the first time in Brazil, in the middle of the Amazon jungle. This interview #198 with the maestro’s right hand, producer and stage director Paulo Esper, is the perfect companion for the conductor’s, since it adds more information particularly about the opera company at Theatro São Pedro, and tells us more about the training of young singers, and the Maria Callas singing competition.
