What exactly is a countertenor?  Is it really the modern-day version of the famed Italian castrati?  General Manager and Artistic Director George Steel sits down with Partenope stars Iestyn Davies and Anthony Roth Costanzo to discuss the fascinating history of this singing voice and how it has transitioned from the Baroque to the present.

A most illuminating interview, and both Davies and Costanzo are informative and articulate as is Steel with probing questions. Thank you George Steel for this and outstanding work of managing the company.

A wonderful discussion --- very appropriate for the counter tenor revolution today. Both of these young counter tenors are so well versed in their craft and the history of their voice type. Their performances were equally exciting.
