Escamillo & the Matadors

Barihunks loves the role of Escamillo because it always seems to attract the hunkiest singers in the world. There are a number of performances currently running or coming to opera houses this Fall that include barihunks. Ryan McKinny is the Escamillo in the Carmen currently running at the Deutsche Oper Berlin.

We've received a lot of emails about Michael Chioldi, who we haven't posted yet. This seems like a good time to mention that he'll be performing the role of the swaggering torreador in Bordeaux opening in September.

On October 13th, one of our favorites, Kyle Ketelsen, dons the "traje de luces" of the torreador at Lyric Opera of Chicago.

If you've ever wondered what goes on backstage during a performance of an opera, check out this hilarious video of the matadors dancing backstage during a performance of Carmen last year at the Royal Opera House.

  1. Who is the guy that introduces the dancers? He's very hot.
