‘Franco Corelli’

Franco Corelli was a 20th-century phenomenon, an Italian tenor with a unique sound! Discovering his immense vocal power and stage presence came about while watching an opera excerpt on the local arts television station. (‘Turandot’ by Puccini) Immediately I was hooked. His music lives in my head all the time.

Q. Do you have art that inspires your art-making?
