Mario Bahg took time to connect with Schmopera ahead of his Toronto Summer Music Festival debut (Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde on August 1) and his Montreal dates (Verdi Requiem with Montreal Symphony on August 7 and an opera soirée on August 10). Here’s a peek:

I feel happy when I sing on stage. Many people have the impression that classical music is very difficult and only a few people can enjoy it. I want to show the world that it’s not. If I can move someone through my singing – that’s really why I want to be a singer.
