Honolulu TV station features "Barihunks" blog and trio of singers

Darren Stokes discussing Barihunks on KITV television
KITV television in Honolulu, Hawaii featured Barihunks on their news yesterday. The feature not only highlighted our ten years in the opera blogosphere, but was a promotion for Hawaii Opera Theatre's current production of Bizet's Carmen, which features three barihunks. We recently ran a post about the production. You can watch the entire segment HERE.

Carmen will feature Darren Stokes singing the role of Escamillo, joined by fellow barihunks Matthew Treviño as Zuniga and Brian James Myer as El Dancaïro. Stokes discusses the need to hit the gym to keep in shape for the physicality of the role, while Treviño talks about spikes to his website when he's featured on the site, and Myer talks about the need for singers to be promoted.

The cast for Carmen also includes Kate Aldrich in the title role, Kip Wilborn as Don José and the stunning Talise Trevigne as Micaëla. There are remaining performances on October 15 and 17, and tickets are available online.
