Bass-baritone Patrick Carfizzi is our Don Alfonso in Cosi fan tutte this season. On this episode of the podcast, Patrick dives deep into the psyche of this professor who is more complex than meets the eye. Last seen at Central City Opera in 2013 as Don Bartolo in The Barber of Seville, Patrick shares why he loves to perform comic roles, why Mozart’s music continues to be at the top of his list, and how singing kept him sane during a serious childhood illness.
