You’ll finally get to meet tenor Matthew Plenk on this episode of the podcast. He’s playing the role of Ferrando in Cosi fan tutte this season. We talk about his favorite aspects of Ferrando’s character and music, his experiences at the Metropolitan Opera during the National Council Auditions and the Lindemann Young Artist Development Program, teaching at the University of Denver, his musical young children, and his circuitous path to a career in opera.
