Dreamy Ryan Kuster
The dreamy barihunk Ryan Kuster is currently singing Dikoj the drunkard in "Katya Kabanova" with the Academy of Vocal Arts in Philadelphia. If he sings more Janacek in the future, I'd recommend "From the House of the Dead" [see the blog posting below and tell me if you agree].
Ryan is a 2007 Metropolitan Opera New England Regional Finalist, whose only barihunk opera so far has been "A Midsummer's Night Dream." He has sung Masetto in "Don Giovanni," but barihunks thinks he should sing the title role a la Kwiecien or Schrott. That would be hot!
This summer he covered Don Pedro in "Béatrice et Bénédict" and Samuel Ramey in "Bluebeard's Castle" at the Chicago Opera Theater.
