What fascinates you about opera?

It is just everything in one package. All that beautiful music that tears your soul away, the stories from where you can find yourself or learn new aspects, the history… and why I love to sing opera is just that it's so amazing to share all those stories, music and feelings with others.

To which music do you love to dance?

To all music which sounds good, has great energy and makes me feel free and happy. For example Folk music, Latin music, Pop music, Classical music etc. There are so many amazing dance music genres so it's quite impossible to nominate just one to which I love to dance.

Road Trip or Flying Away?

Road Trip! I love driving and the best thing is to see how the sceneries change and if you want to make a stop for watching those, no one is telling you to continue the trip if you want to enjoy the views a bit longer. Just imagine… It's a hot summer day and suddenly you see a very nice lake and you would like to go to swim so badly. And you can just do it. Ah how I love road trips!
