Up on that middle or high school stage belting out a tune in a student musical could be a budding opera star. Don’t believe it? Look at the career of Nicholas Cotellessa, a member of the Norwegian National Opera and Ballet.
Cotellessa, a native of Darien, was in Wilton on Nov. 8, to visit his mother, Nancy Cotellessa, at Ogden House and give a musical performance for the residents. Also in the audience were his sisters, Terri Sheridan of Wilton, and Susan Jones of Darien.
