Juan Diego Florez: I wanted to be like Enrique Iglesias

During his superb run as Giacomo, in an otherwise awful production of La donna del lago in Paris,  Juan Diego Florez spoke about his singing debuts and his boyish dreams to become a pop singer... like Enrique Iglesias.  Ahem :)

A 4min30 excerpt of that interview (in Italian/Spanish and with French subtitles) after the jump...


  1. With this guy, I know he has an immense talent for, well, singing high, and a natural gift for performing, but there is always a sense that he got into opera like, yesterday. And that people who got into opera through him also did.
    That headline doesn't help, lol.

  2. Definitely, which is why I thought it was fun :)
