Luca Interview: "I am Figaro" (unfortunately overdubbed in German)

Here is a brief interview on Bavarian Radio with Luca. He is back to Figaro at the Bayerische Staatsoper. But he talks a bit about the contrast between singing the Count (der Graf) and Figaro. The interviewer asks questions in German (natch!) but Luca answers in English (great!) except as soon as he starts talking, some German dude starts translating over him (buh!). 

With a bit familiarity with German, and catching the beginning and ending of Luca's English antworten...I mean answers, one can pick up that he feels very much at home with Figaro, but enjoys being the bad guy too. He also contrasts the sunny mood of Italy with the darker attitude in Austria. I am sure Austrians just love hearing that! 
So here it is. Enjoy!


  1. He's a Gemini, eh. Figures ;-) I bet he makes the Count hilarious as well.

    1. His count is funny and scary too. See the Nozze on
