I'm a fairly regular attendee of the Spoleto Festival, but somehow I missed Nmon Ford as Don Giovanni. From what I've heard, it was one of the steamiest Don's to be seen on stage in some time. Well, at least there are photos!
Nmon Ford was born in Panama and has already made his mark in the barihunk speciality roles of the aforementioned Don, Billy Budd, Samson and Jochanaan. If we want to see more his pulchritude, we need to get him cast in Dead Man Walking, Pearl Fishers and Streetcar Named Desire. Although still early in his career, he has already shared a Grammy Award for his participation on Bolcom's "Songs of Innocence and of Experience"
Blessed with a voice as beautiful as his body, he won First Place in the Liederkranz Foundation of New York Wagner Competition, as well as prizes from the Gerda Lissner Foundation and the George London Foundation. He earned his Bachelor's and Master's Degrees from the University of Southern California where he graduated cum laude, and was named Outstanding Vocal Arts Graduate, for both degrees.
Smart and sexy. Now that's hot!

Samson? Is he a baritone with a heldentenor top? Or, was he singing an ultra-sexy High priest rather than Samsom himself?ReplyDelete
Uh, I certainly meant a shirtless High Priest. That will teach me to not write out the role and the opera. I certainly wouldn't have written that he sang Salome, although the thought is intriguing. I'm sure that Brigitte Fassbaender will consider the idea.ReplyDelete
I always dreamed about a tenor salome. Would be hot...ReplyDelete
And, of course, a tenor-natasha in Oneguin. That would make sens, no?ReplyDelete
hey! this post is a reply to the "diversity" comment!!! Afraid of being accused of political incorrectness?!?! How come you haven´t even replied with a comment my requests!!? i suggested several barihunks already!!! Me saaaadddReplyDelete
Lindsay, congratulations on not being in rehab with Ms. Spears. Nmon wasn't posted to be politically correct. He has been on my list for some time and he is certainly deserving! Who would you most like to see on Barihunks? No promises, in case you say Bryn Terfel or anyone singing at SF Opera this year.ReplyDelete
