Duncan Rock in sexy Carmen, roadshow of opera highlights and Barihunks calendar

When Calixto Bieito is directing an opera one can almost guarantee that it will be a sexually charged production. The current run of his Carmen at the English National Opera is no exception. The production is filled with sexual tension, sexual confidence, sexual power, sexual obsessiveness and sexy singers. It even has some male nudity and simulated fellatio to ensure that it's an echt Bieito production.

Leading the back is our 2013 Barihunk Charity Calendar sensation Duncan Rock as Morales. Joining him on stage as Escamillo is Leigh Melrose, who has been regularly featured on this site, as well.

The production opened on Wednesday, November 21st and runs through December 9th at the London Coliseum. Tickets and additional performance information is available online. Also playing at the ENO is Ralph Vaughan William's masterpiece The Pilgrim's Progress, which he was obsessed with for much of his life.

Rock, who created a sensation with his performance of Don Giovanni at Heaven in London  is a graduate of the National Opera Studio. He also holds a Masters Degree in Music and Opera from London’s Guildhall School of Music and Drama where he received a full scholarship from the Independent Opera foundation.
