Vittorio Grigolo, Opera Singer, Is An Unconventional Tenor (VIDEO)

Even though Vittorio Grigolo's new album is titled "Arrivederci," we're just getting to know him. He stopped by the studios and introduced us to another thrilling side of his personality.

Motorcycle escapades, race-car and helicopter jaunts seem like the hobbies of pop superstars, yet they're right up Vittorio's alley. When he's not flying around the world performing, he's at home on his bike. If you're thinking that opera and choppers are an inharmonious mix, well somehow Vittorio meshes it all together in his exuberant persona.

Risky, yes, dangerous, yes but also fun, Vittorio doesn't take himself too seriously. He's passionate about his craft and you can hear that passion in his performance of Roméo in the Los Angeles Opera's "Roméo et Juliette" and check out his bike in the video above.
