Henry Phipps! what a guy! Congratulations. I am a 75 yr.old opera nut, and I loved your story. Many opera stars have beginnings similar to yours so keep singing and you just might have a career that you love and also takes you all over the world. What a first role! To be in a production with Thomas Hampson... to die for!!!
My best wishes to you for a productivew and joyful life.
