John Brancy seductive as Guglielmo

John Brancy and Wallis Giunta
Check out barihunk John Brancy and mezzo-soprano Wallis Giunta performing Dorabella and Guglielmo's seduction duet from Mozart's Cosi Fan Tutte in Neumarkt, Germany. The two singers are participating in the International Meistersinger Akademie with coaches like sopranos Edith Wiens and Ann Murray,  as well as pianist Malcolm Martineau. Also in the program is barihunk Tobias Greenhalgh. 

If the two seem particularly cozy in this video it's because they are dating off-stage, so John's seduction skills as Guglielmo must be pretty convincing.

Here is Brancy performing Largo al factotum from Rossini's Barber of Seville, filmed at a final dress performance for a concert that was broadcast throughout Germany.

The International Meistersinger Akademie is a great opportunity for young singers to work with amazing coaches, but it is also a destination for European agents, promoters, opera directors and festival managers. These networking opportunities often provide a launching pad for young singers embarking on a European career.

  1. Hi, thanks for posting this! Pretty sure Wallis Giunta is a mezzo though...Dorabellas usually are. Also, your video links aren't active. Could you please repost them? Ciao!

  2. I'd be glad to be seduced by such a Guglielmo!

  3. You can just go to Youtube and put in John brancy Largo, this should work!

  4. She's better looking than him, but at least his voice is better. She was pitchy in my opinion and was singing wrong notes...
