Interview with Glamcult Magazine

"Reanimating the art of opera, and making it cool again, may seem like a daunting venture. Luckily, 
STEVE KATONA is here to prove that the 400-year-old genre has a lot to live for in the present day—provided you’re mindful of outdated frameworks. A BERLIN-based singer, composer and performance artist, Katona masterfully interjects opera with contemporary arts, revolutionising both while simultaneously honouring their core principles. Whether it’s singing on the runway of a GMBH show or performing an experimental theatre piece at the TATE, Katona’s moving voice becomes a deadly weapon, and his vision, a thought-provoking, ground-shaking rebellion of the new generation. Enchanted at first sight, we had to catch up with the artist and delve into his process, discuss opera in the context of modernity, and hear about his upcoming narrative-based album."
