John Relyea is another alumnus of the San Francisco Opera's Merola Opera Program, who began his career singing roles on the SF Opera stage. He is rapidly making become a house favorite at the Metropolitan Opera.
He has yet to venture into barihunk territory other than the Rape of Lucretia, singing roles like the four villains in Les contes de Hoffman, Raimondo in Lucia di Lammermoor, Giorgio in I Puritani, Don Basilio in Il barbiere di Siviglia and Colline in La Bohème. But he makes the Barihunks site for his eyes alone.
