Ashutosh Khandekar - Editor of Opera Now magazine - recounts his entry into the opera world via student opera. Ash realised he was never good enough to be a professional opera singer, but it didn't stop him taking part as student. Born in Bombay, he discovered opera whilst a student at Oxford, fell in love with it and the seed was sown. He's spent the past 15 years watching practically every new production not only in this continent but around the globe including places where you would least expect to find opera, such as Hanoi, Istanbul and Ulan Bator.
