Sound Bites: Joseph Kaiser

Sound Bites: Joseph Kaiser

Joseph Kaiser's career path has taken a few fairy-tale twists that have turned him into a prince. The twenty-nine-year-old Canadian tenor is Tamino in Kenneth Branagh's English-language Magic Flute film, which had its premiere in September at the Toronto and Venice Film Festivals. "I didn't even mean to audition for it!" he exclaims. The Lyric Opera Center young artist actually caught Branagh's attention in his few minutes onstage as the First Prisoner, when the director dropped by Chicago's dress rehearsal of Fidelio in 2005 to hear René Pape for the film's Sarastro. A chance audition with James Conlon, the film's conductor, led to screen tests, and seven weeks later, an opera film star was born. (Photo: Dario Acosta) Read the full story in Opera News
