Barihunk Switch at Glimmerglass

Michael Todd Simpson as Escamillo

Michael Todd Simpson has been asked to step in for fellow barihunk Keith Miller as Escamillo in the current run of Bizet's "Carmen" at Glimmerglass. Simpson recently sang the role at the National Centre for the Performing Arts in Beijing, China. 

Simpson takes over on July 15 for Miller who decided to withdraw from the production. Performances run through August 23 in the Alice Busch Opera Theater in Cooperstown, New York. Visit for tickets and information. 

We recently blogged about another barihunk in the production, the Morales of barihunk Wes Mason.

  1. Of course, you must know that the under study, young artist baritone Aleksey Bogdanov, stepped in yesterday (July 9th) and BROUGHT THE HOUSE DOWN! The ovation for his Toreador lasted at least a full 30 seconds.

    Aleksey will perform the role of Escamillo tomorrow as well as once more for the young artist matinee performance on August 5th. He is a MUST SEE and worth the travel! One of the greatest Escamillos I have ever heard!
