David Wannen - "He is the very model of a modern major, uh, model."

I'm sure some opera purists will object to the inclusion of a barihunk who sings mostly musicals and Gilbert & Sullivan. However, who can argue with these pictures?

Wannen has performed with the New York Gilbert & Sullivan players since 2004, singing in Iolanthe, Pirates of Penzance, Rose of Persia, Mikado and Yeoman of the Guard. He's toured with some Broadway musicals and performed with the Ohio Light Opera.

When Wannen isn't singing he works as a model.


  1. Major bass-baritone voice...have heard him at City Center...

  2. No objection here on two accounts: G and S is still amongst the most difficult stuff to sing and is great music; and he's a hunk!

  3. "I'm called little buttercup, sweet little buttercup..."

    Erwin Schrott better hopes that Wannen never takes up the role of Don Giovanni, because Wannen will be the new favorite Don for directors looking for a shirtless rake.

  4. David is a great singer, wonderful friend, and a whole lotta fun to boot! He's also getting hitched in august to a beautiful, lovely lady.
