Edwin Crossley-Mercer surrounded by devilishly sexy men

Edwin Crossley-Mercer
There isn't much that could've gotten us to take our eyes off of the gorgeous, underwear clad men dancing and writing around the stage during the Paris Opera's La Damnation de Faust, except perhaps Edwin Crossley-Mercer. The barihunk managed to stand out singing the Song of the Rat (Chanson de Brander) in an all-star cast that included Bryn Terfel as Mephistopheles, Jonas Kaufmann as Faust and Sophie Koch as Marguerite. You can watch a highlight of the Song of the Rat by clicking HERE.

The controversial production by director and set designer Alvis Hermanis, which was booed by some in the audience, re-imagined Faust’s intellectual daring in the age of Stephen Hawking and the exploration of the Universe. Hawking appears as a silent character throughout the opera who [spoiler alert] stands up at the end of the opera.

Whatever one thinks of the production, which you can currently watch on Culturebox, the singing from all of the principles is magnificent under the baton of Philippe Jordan. If you like a little skin with your opera, it might be worth watching, as there is plenty of eye candy to pass the time.
