Was Billy Budd Married?
[CLICK ON PICTURE TO ENLARGE]
One of the worst trends in operas is letting singers wear their wedding rings on stage, especially when the character is single and particularly when they are in pursuit of another character (Don Giovanni was a recent example that we spotted). One character who definitely isn't married is Billy Budd in Britten's opera of the same name.
However, the Pittsburgh Opera issued this picture of barihunk Nathan Gunn for their production two years ago. Of course, Top Gunn is awfully cute, ring or no ring.
Barihunks next feature will be a poll to determine the hottest Billy Budd of all time. Send your nominations to email@example.com or leave it under COMMENTS below (although we understand that it's not working for many readers).
