“At my auditions,” said baritone Efraín Solís at our recent interview, “I always knew that if I started with Mozart I could sing anything else after that. If you’re in New York? And you’re trying to warm-up on the train and you’re late? If I walked in and suggested that I’d like to start with the Mozart – I know it would put me in a good place. I sang a lot of  ‘Aprite un po’quegli occhi’ [Le Nozze di Figaro] and ‘Fin ch’han dal vino’ [Don Giovanni]. This year I started putting on Papageno, really thinking about the character. His second act aria is very frantic.”
