Morten Lassenius Kramp in Premiere of "Heart of Darkness"

Morten Lassenius Kramp

We love the combination of a world premiere plus a new barihunk for the site. That's what happened when British composer Tarik O’Regan's new opera "Heart of Darkness" premiered at the Linbury Studio Theatre at the Royal Opera House in London.

The opera is based on Joseph Conrad’s novel, which explores themes of obsession and brutality in the oppressive atmosphere of the African Congo, as the riverboat captain Marlow searches for a notorious ivory trader. The role of the mysterious and obsessed character of Kurtz is played by the Danish bass Moren Lassenius Kramp. Our source in London said that Kurtz looked "extremely hot and very fit" on stage.

The 39-year-old singer graduated from the Royal Academy of Music in Copenhagen in 1999 and has established himself in both recitals and on stage. He has sung primarily at the Royal Theatre in Copenhagen and throughout Europe, singing roles like Masetto in Mozart's "Don Giovanni," Count Dominik in Richard Strauss' "Arabella" and Count Ceprano in Verdi's "Rigoletto."

You can read Jeanne Whalen's review of the opera in the Wall Street Journal.

Here is some behind-the-scenes footage of the young and very sexy Martin Sheen in his underwear from "Apocalype Now," which is based on the novel "Heart of Darkness":
