Michael Volpe loves more than just opera. He is a Chelsea fan, enjoys jazz, soul, funk and thinks John Martyn was a demi-God and XTC the greatest British band ever to pick up guitars.
He has been at Holland Park for over 23 years and persuaded RBKC to start the company in 1996.
He has three ridiculously talented children and lives in London.
