    I've attended Macbeth at the Metropolitan Opera House tonight, and went backstage to meet Thomas Hampson.

    First, let me tell you about him. He's very friendly and funny.

    I was looking for his room, peeking at the names on the doors, and he bumped into me on the corridor when I was reading another singer's name on a door, and he asked: "Are you looking for Günther?" [Günther Groissböck, in the role of Banquo.] I said, "no, I'm looking for you!" He said, "Almaviva?" I said, "yes" and he said "io sono Figaro."

    Luiz Gazzola has interviewed outstanding American baritone Thomas Hampson exclusively for Opera Lively. [Opera Lively interview # 17]

    Mr. Hampson is an extremely intelligent man (read the last two paragraphs of his biography below!), and commands an admirable depth and breadth of operatic knowledge. His insights were most impressive, and we are sure that this interview is one of the gems of our website. Our thanks to Mr. Albert Imperato who facilitated the exchange, and his agency 21C Media Group.
