Brian Jagde spent nine years as a baritone until he finally decided to check out why so many folks thought he was a tenor. Turns out they were right, and the past two years have launched Brian on a new career path as a lyric tenor. He joins the Castleton Festival for the first time this year, singing the role of Rodolpho in Puccini's La Boheme. Classical WETA's Deb Lamberton spoke to him about changing his fach from baritone to tenor, and about what he thinks when playing Rodolpho.
