The Only Onegin as Hot as Hvorostovsky

I don't know about you, but whenever I see a production of Eugene Onegin with a baritone as hot as Mariusz Kwiecien or Dmitri Hvorostovsky I can't understand at the end why Tatiana doesn't take him back. Take a look at those photos of Mariusz "Hot Pole" Kwiecien and tell me that you wouldn't run out of the palace with him!

  1. I've seen the Bolshoi production on video. Some very strange happenings but overall I liked it. Kwiecien was wonderful, especially in the last act. The Tatyana was phenomenal. I enjoyed it. I think he was better there than at the performance in Chicago I saw (which I heard later on was an off night).

  2. It's actually the Bolshoi Opera performing at the Bastille and he's a much hotter Onegin than Hvorostovsky.

  3. I give the nod to Hvorostovsky, but only by a (gray) hair.

  4. I love Kwiecien, he is the hottest barihunk! But did you know guys that he is gay?

  5. And what has Mariusz Kwiecien's sexual preference have to do with anything?
