Craig Verm established his reputation with the Pittsburgh Opera and set hearts aflutter with his shirtless portrayal of the Novice’s Friend in Britten’s Billy Budd [center photo]. That same season he portrayed Mercutio in Gounod’s Romeo & Juliette with the company, who has one of the better eyes for barihunk talent.
After a run of Gordon’s Grapes of Wrath in Pittsburgh, he heads to Italy to sing in two of our favorite operas at Barihunks, Britten’s Midsummer Night’s Dream and Mozart's Die Zauberflöte.
We hope to see a lot more of Verm and thank a reader for tipping us off to this up and comer. If you have a barihunk that you'd like to see on the site, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
