WHAT'S ON YOUR IPOD? BWW Talks to Tenor Stephen Costello
What's on your iPod tenor Stephen Costello?
Rising star tenor Stephen Costello is one of the most sought after singers in the world these days. The Philadelphia-born tenor leapt onto the national stage in 2009 when he won the prestigious Richard Tucker Award. Since then he has graced the stages of many of the world's most important opera houses. Fresh off of his successful Houston Grand Opera debut in Rigoletto, the tenor is currently in the midst of a run in Washington D.C. as Ishmael/Greenhorn, the role he originally created, in the East Coast premiere of Jake Heggie's Moby-Dick (Feb 22-March 8). Immediately following, he stays in DC to reprise his star turn as Nemorino in L'elisir d'amore (March 20-29). Then he gets the chance to sing opposite the love of his life, his wife, the marvelous young soprano Ailyn Perez in London, in La Traviata. The tenor and his favorite soprano are also about to release their first CD of duets this spring, a recording of romantic love duets by Verdi, Puccini, Bernstein, and others, recorded with the BBC Symphony Orchestra with Patrick Summers conducting,
BBW Classical is thrilled that Stephen took a break from his busy schedule to share what's on his iPod with us!
This sounds like fun! I know that most of these are albums, but I listen to different tracks each time!
