10 Questions with Colton Michael Carothers

Wednesday, August 3

Meet Colton Michael Carothers, Tempo Board of Directors

Colton at La Scala in October 2010.
1. What’s your sign?
Virgo: “perfect is almost good enough.”

2. Favorite opera?
Very hard to pick. But these stand out as marvels: Donizetti’s L’elisir d’amore, Puccini’s La fanciulla del West, Smetana’s The Bartered Bride, Wagner’s Der fliegende Holländer and Die Walküre, and Weinberg’s The Portrait.

3. If you could have any other job in the world, what would it be?
I’m just starting out as a lawyer and am going to love it. Should I ever want to switch things up, I’ll try something simpler, like Ambassador to France, or General Director of the Metropolitan Opera or Opéra National de Paris. 

4. What is your favorite dessert? 
Coconut milk sticky rice with mango. Or macarons. Yumm… 

5. If you had to describe yourself using three words, what would they be?
Never stop. Period.

6. What is your favorite holiday? 

7. What was your first opera?
Verdi’s Attila in Rome.

8. If they made a movie of your life, what would it be about and which actor would you want to play you?
Have you seen The Last Unicorn? 

9. Are you a morning or night person?
I’m early to bed and late to rise; I’m at my prime during happy hour over cocktails (The Lawyer from Philadelphia at La Belle Vie, please). 

10. What’s your favorite thing to do in the winter?
Watching The Muppet Christmas Carol, over and over and over again…while opening presents.

Funny, your response to the astrological sign question was the same as mine. Virgos. :-) http://mnopera-tempo.blogspot.com/2010/12/10-questions-with-sb-hadley-wilson.html
