On the occasion of his role debut in "Siegfried", Klaus Florian Vogt talks to Beate Breidenbach in the Zurich Opera podcast about the character of Siegfried, who in his interpretation is more than a dumb fool and definitely also knows tender, quiet tones. He also talks about how singing a Wagnerian role is easy for him and easy on the voice, and reveals why he prefers to stay in a camper van instead of a hotel when traveling.
