"Hi-Ho, Escamillo...and away!"

Readers owe a giant "Thank You" to a Barihunks reader in Australia who forwarded this picture of Michael Todd Simpson cutting a strapping figure as Escamillo. The 6' 4" barihunk is singing in Bizet's "Carmen" at the Sydney Opera House and apparently is leaving poor Don Jose in the dust.


  1. There is no doubt about it! Sydney audience members are struggling not to shout out that they too would declare their love for Escamillo in the face of death! Mutterings about Don Jose "not doing it for me" fill the northern foyer of the Sydney Opera House at interval and there are many who would happily trade places with the horse, let alone Carmen! Sydney.
