Titus Burgess has won over the hearts of millions for portraying Titus Andromedon on Netflix’s series Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.  Titus Andromedon is an aspiring entertainer and the roommate of the title character, Kimmy. He never needs encouragement to bust out into song. Titus Burgess revealed in an interview with Vanity Fair that he is an opera fan.

His vocal hero? None other than American soprano Renée Fleming. He even had the chance to perform for Fleming once. In Vanity Fair, he said that after he sang for her, they had, “a pedagogical conversation that she prompted. She said, ‘How do you produce that noise?’ And I started to talk her through my process. I couldn’t believe we were having this conversation.”

While unfortunately, no media has surfaced of Burgess singing for Fleming, we can enjoy this clip of him singing “Vesti la giubba” from Leoncavallo’s Pagliacci.
