Another Hot Shave: Jose Carbo sings "Al idea di quel metallo"

About two months ago I posted a video of the adorable Jose Carbo singing the Largo. Here he is at the Teatro Real with the amazing tenor Lawrence Brownlee singing "Al idea di quel metallo." In a bit of luxury barihunk casting the role of Basilio was sung by Ildebrando d'Arcangelo.

I've received a couple of emails from Carbo's colleagues who say that he is the nicest person to work with.


  1. This has got to be one of the stupidest productions I have ever seen. All those supers and all that commotion for no purpose whatsoever. The singers should be on stage alone - and sing. Imagine changing the set for the next scene during the cabaletta of the duet! What's up with that? Who cares what the nonsensical set is anyway? Just something else to look at if the singing is boring you? Boo!Boo! I don't thing either Larry or Jose or anything special to look at........but they sure can sing!

  2. Nothing special to look at!?!? Have you checked out Carbo's other post on this site with his shirt open? I'm not sure that anyone can look "hot" in this role, but Carbo sure is adorable. Rumor has it that he's scheduled to make his US debut in Seattle.

  3. I can tell you personally Jose is one of the nicest gentlemen you'll ever meet. Having had the privelidge of knowing him in his youth- you could just tell he was going to achieve extraordinary things - I say Bravo to Jose and know he will keep fulfilling his dream. I wish Jose, his wife and children a lifetime of happiness and hope he continues to grace us with his immense talent!
