The program, which also ventures beyond the Renaissance, includes music by Lassus, Dowland and Purcell. Barihunk Christopher Herbert is part of the ensemble and this group is not be missed. If you haven't seen them yet, grab two tickets and take your favorite valentine.

Tenor Jonas Kaufmann and barihunks Rene Pape and Boaz Daniel
Lastly, we want readers to know about a live broadcast this week of Verdi's "Don Carlo." The performance originally included Mariusz Kwiecien as Rodrigo, but he withdrew due to ongoing issues with his back that he injured during a Met rehearsal of Don Giovanni. The "Hot Pole" will be replaced by Boaz Daniel. Even without Kwiecien, this production still had quite a bit of eye candy, including tenor heartthrob Jonas Kaufman and barihunk Rene Pape.

The performance begins at 5 PM German time (11 AM EST/8 AM PST). Click HERE for the broadcast.



  1. i really dont know why you dont include among "eye candy" also Boaz Daniel? Have you heard/seen him already ? I assure you he is an accomplished singer and not worse than most of your "barihunks" here on your web.

  2. I was in Munich 19.01 and Boaz Daniel is a very nice guy , but a likeable "Teddy Bear" rather than barihunk.Vocally OK , but not on the same level as Mariusz. Jonas Kaufmann is really a beautiful man and he sing (and act) like God,Rene Pape , not so handsome, but fantastic singer.
