Chicago: Where singers look like jocks and jocks look like singers

The Chicago Cubs donning their opera look and barihunk David Adam Moore
We managed to catch barihunk David Adam Moore on singing the National Anthem before the May 6th Chicago Cubs game at Wrigley Field. Beyond his stellar rendition of the National Anthem, what really caught our eye was that some of the Cubs players looked like characters from Donizetti's Lucia di Lammermoor, while Moore looked more like a professional jock.

Moore, who has been known to be an avid skate boarder and mixed martial arts participant, was busting the seams of his Lyric Opera of Chicago tee shirt and showing off an impressive set of "guns" to go with that voice. Moore is currently starring as the bad guy" farmhand Jud Fry in Lyric Opera's production of Rodgers and Hammerstein's OKLAHOMA! alongside John Cudia and Ashley Brown. Performances run through May 19th and tickets are available online.

He returns to opera as Silvio in Leoncavallo's I Pagliacci with the San Diego Opera this season, and also has a recording of Die Winterreise scheduled for release on GPR Records. Also available on GPR are recordings by barihunks Andrew Garland and Daniel Okulitch.

  1. That's the way it should be sung - a perfect combination Baseball & Barihunks! Who could ask for more?
