Nelson Ebo

Angolan tenor Nelson Ebo's upcoming role is one that hits particularly close to home. Next month in Heartbeat Opera's new adaptation of Beethoven's Fidelio (May 3-13), Ebo sings Stan - or Florestan, in the original libretto - the black activist who is wrongfully incarcerated. Ebo, born during the Angolan Civil War, has seen injustice in his own life; he lost friends and family to illness and violence before leaving Angola to pursue singing in Spain.

Ebo spoke with us about being "the loudest one" of a family of 16 children, his early love of The Three Tenors, and what he has in common with Stan in this special Fidelio.
