Canadian bass Robert Pomakov has built himself a pretty enviable career. He's currently in the middle of a Metropolitan Opera-heavy season, returning in January for productions of Les contes d'Hoffmann, Manon and Don Carlo. He has sung for conductors like James Levine, James Conlon, Riccardo Muti, Yannick Nézet-Séguin and Nicola Luisotti. He has been a regular voice at the Canadian Opera Company (Peter Grimes, War and Peace, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Le rossignol). He also owns Opera Bob's Public House over at 1112 Dundas St. W in Toronto. So I headed over to to his bar to chat with Opera Bob himself about his hard work, that awesome Vegas-style Rigoletto, and what he does when he's not onstage.
