The Johnny Depp of opera? I see the physical resemblance, but I hope the analogy extends to smoldering intensity! Mr. Depp's name was recently bandied in reference to Giuseppe Filianoti's intense Hoffman at the Met (I know, tenor; sorry.) In other curious actor-singer comparisons, Tommassini likened Simon Keenlyside to the also-lovely, and invariably intense Ralph Fiennes.ReplyDelete
