Robin Adams' Barechested Onegin

[Pictures of Robin Adams in Bern's "Eugene Onegin"]

A few people have recently brought English baritone Robin Adams to our attention. We can't ignore him anymore with his super-sexy performance of Tchaikovsky's "Eugene Onegin" in Bern, Switzerland. Adams spends a good deal of the opera barechested and barefoot and stalking Tatiana like a sexual predator.

Back in January 2009, we declared Mariusz Kwiecien and Dmitri Hvorostovsky as the hottest Onegin's, but Adams may give them both a run for their money. He certainly brings the same raw sexuality to the role as Kwiecien. It's also nice to see directors injecting a little heat into Onegin rather than having it performed like a Jane Austen novel. This production is also decidedly heterosexual, unlike the Brokeback Onegin that played in Munich. As wonderful as that gimmick was, it was only going to work once.

The Swiss culture site has a great video highlight of the opera. See the video HERE.

Here are some additional images of Robin Adams for your enjoyment:
