The year seems to be overflowing with hunks.
There are old favorites like Russian Dmitri Hvorostovsky who was everywhere this year and especially in the Met broadcast of Eugene Onegin:
and Juan Diego Florez from Spain who wowed us all in Il Barbiere di Siviglia from the Met:
But we also have plenty of new guys, such as Danish Bo Skovhus from the San Francisco production of Iphegenie en Tauride:
And German Jonas Kaufmann from last winter's Fidelio:
If we go back a year we find the American Charles Castronovo from The Pearl Fishers:
I haven't seen him live, but I must include this photo of Erwin Schrott, from Uruguay, from this summer's Don Giovanni at ROH:
Oops! I have seen him live. He was Figaro last year in London. He was cute. That's the main thing I remember about him.
If I have left out your favorite, I apologize. Perhaps this year I will skip the ladies altogether.
