Liam Bonner in Hamlet at WNO

The Baltimore Sun features barihunk Liam Bonner prominently in their article about Thomas'Hamlet at the Washington National Opera. The opera opens on Wednesday, May 19th and runs through June 4th.

The Sun wrote:

Liam Bonner, the vibrant young baritone who will alternate in the title role with Michael Chioldi (both are substitutes for the originally announced Carlos Alvarez), is another admirer of the piece. "I'm not sure why it got lost over the years," Bonner says. "I know a lot of people who are wary of it. But I love it. It's a very challenging work and complex on many levels."

  1. To those who live in the D.C. area - definitely go. I heard Bonner as Belcore in Houston last October, and he gave both Ekaterina Siurina (Adina) and John Osborne (Nemorino) a run for their money. And, yes, he is a barihunk.

  2. Great opera. Great baritone. You go Liam!

  3. We've seen it twice. Both Bonner and Chioldi (a smaller barihunk) are really good. Sam Ramey (barihunk emeritus) has vibrato that is all over the place, which is a little sad considering the pleasures he has provided over the years.
