Michael Fabiano, recently in London to sing the title-role in Gounod's Faust at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, has recorded an album of arias by Donizetti and Verdi.
He was joined for the Pentatone sessions by the London Philharmonic Orchestra - with whom he'd worked at Glyndebourne – and Enrique Mazzola.
James Jolly caught up with Michael Fabiano during rehearsals at Covent Garden to talk about the programme of the recital, and his interest in the operatic music of this period.
