Meet the Artists – Stephen Hobe

Stephen Hobe

Mr. Lindquist

  1. Where were you born and raised?
    I was born and raised a Chicagoan.
  2. If you weren’t a singer, what profession would you be in?
    When I am not singing opera, I am exercising my paleontology and museum muscles. I’m about to start an online certificate in Museum Studies.
  3. The first opera I was ever in was…
    Donizetti’s The Elixir of Love in English at Carthage College in Kenosha.
  4. My favorite opera is…
    I would say my favorite opera goes back and forth between Bernstein’s Candide and Rossini’s La Cenerentola.
  5. My favorite food to cook is…
    Chicago-style Italian beef.
  6. People would be surprised to know that…
    I have a fake front tooth! My brother knocked it out playing hockey.
  7. If I could spend a ‘weekend in the country’ anywhere, real or fantasy, I would travel to…
    Iceland when the sun doesn’t set.
  8. I like to binge-watch…
    Mythbusters with my Aunt Carol.
  9. What four people (living or deceased) would you like to invite for a dinner party?
    Mary Anning, Mae C. Jemison, Leonard Bernstein, and Teddy Roosevelt.
  10. Everyone should see A Little Night Music because….
    It shows Sondheim’s musical genius as an innovator of the future and curator of the past.
  11. Bonus: One question you wish someone would ask you (and the answer).
    Ask me any question about dinosaurs and I may talk your ear off for hours.
