Matt Treviño sporting James Dean look as Leporello

Matt Treviño with Melody Moore, Elie Dehn and Christopher Magiera (clockwise)
After reading our post yesterday about "Barihunks on the air," an alert reader from Boulder, Colorado informed us that the current rum of Don Giovanni from Opera Colorado was being broadcast on Colorado Public Radio. Bummed out that we missed it, we were hoping that a link to the broadcast was still up, but we were sadly disappointed. (Are you folks at CPR reading this? Hint. Hint).

The production features our favorite cigar chomping barihunk Matt Treviño as Leporello and Christopher Magiera as Don Giovanni. The production is being updated to mid-century America with Matt Treviño looking very James Dean-esque. This is Treviño's third role in Don Giovanni, pulling off a rare trifecta. He previously sang the title role with Opera Naples and the Commendatore at the Fort Worth Opera.

If you're in the Rocky Mountain area, you can still catch it live on April 2, 5 and 7. Tickets are available online.

Matt Treviño
Upcoming performances for Treviño include the Ethel Smyth Mass in D with the Cecelia Chorus of New York at Carnegie Hall on April 14, 2013, Beethoven's 9th Symphony at his alma mater Baylor University on April 20th and Sparafucile/Monterone in Verdi's Rigoletto at the Lyric Opera Baltimore on May 17th and 19th.

  1. Actually, it's Magiera who is sporting the James Dean look. I was at the opening last night - great performance - and when they change clothes, Matthew does take the leather Dean-like jacket. But for most of the night he is in what looks like a bowling shirt, I think. Here's a gallery I found from a review of the show which may help:
