    This is the tenor everybody has been talking about. He was recently featured in Opera News Magazine and was on the cover of Opera Now. His success of late has been tremendous. I interviewed Mr. Pirgu for Opera Lively via Skype teleconference, the day before his debut at San Francisco Opera, and was impressed with his friendly and relaxed demeanor [Opera Lively interview # 61]. I look forward to seeing him live on stage at the Met in March 2013 (I have tickets for his Traviata with Diana Damrau and Plácido Domingo). Our readers will enjoy this endearing interview.
