Barihunk Duo at Gotham Chamber Opera

Barihunks Craig Verm & Steven LaBrie
The Gotham Chamber Opera in collaboration with the Tectonic Theater Project is presenting Xavier Montsalvatge's operatic telling of the children's classic El gato con botas (Puss in Boots). The performances run from October 2-10 at the New Victory Theater, 209 W. 42nd Street in New York City.

This world premiere performance will feature barihunks Craig Verm and Steven LaBrie alternating roles. The work is an operatic version of the classic children’s tale in which a charismatic and cunning cat promises a poor miller everlasting love and fortune. All he needs to pull off his ruse are a hat, a cape, a pair of boots, and his wits.

L to R: Craig Verm, Jonothon Lyons, Stefano Brancato, Ginger Costa-Jackson

The opera will be directed by Mois├ęs Kaufman, founder of Tectonic Theater Project and conducted by Neal Goren, founder of Gotham Chamber Opera. The production also features the London puppet masters Blind Summit Theatre, which dazzled audiences at The Met in Anthony Minghella’s "Madama Butterfly."

Fans of this site will recall that the Gotham Chamber Opera presented Haydn's "L’isola disabitata (Desert Island) with some extremely sexy pictures of a shirtless Tom Corbeil.
