Interview: Three questions for Gabriel de Jesus

Why are you studying opera?

What I like about opera is that it combines music and theatre and that both complement each other. Also I like immersing myself in the world of an opera and in the character I'm playing. 

What was your first encounter with opera?

My first encounter with opera was on television in cartoons. I always remember being fascinated by the singers' voices. 

Which is your favourite opera and why? 

Pagliacci by Ruggero Leoncavallo is certainly my favourite opera. This opera never fails to move me every time I hear it. I am always amazed by the roles of Tonio and Silvio, both baritone roles, and I look forward to performing them.
