Another Hot Canadian: Philip Kalmanovitch

Philip Kalmanovitch
We get a lot of emails suggesting new barihunks, but this might have been the most concise and to the point yet:

"How have you missed Philip Kalmanovitch?"

It's a good question and he adds to our ever-growing roster of Canadian barihunks. With all of these hot singers coming out of Canada, we're amazed that the tundra hasn't melted.

The young Canadian baritone is still in the early phase of his career. He's an apprentice artist with the Atelier Lyrique de l’Opéra de Montréal. He has appeared in several operas, including Puccini’s "La Bohème as Marcello, Donizetti’s "L’elisir d’amore" as Belcore, "La fille du regiment" as the Corporal, and in one of our our most popular operas for discovering new barihunks, Britten’s "The Rape of Lucretia," where he performed Junius.

Kalmanovitch is a founding member of Open Corps Theatre, a Toronto-based collaborative theatre company. With Open Corps he sang and played guitar and bass in sold-out productions of "Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris."

Upcoming roles include Conte Ceprano in Verdi’s "Rigoletto," Servant in Donizetti’s "Roberto Devereux," Secret Police Officer in Menotti’s "The Consul," and Sergente in "La Bohème," all with Opéra de Montréal.
