Culture: we just found out there is a website devoted to shirtless baritones

The video below is nearly ten years old, but we don't care — AKSARBENT ain't never seen it. The website is here. The piece is Pearl Fishers and features William Burden and Nathan Gunn.

     It was written by Georges Bizet, whose "other" opera, Carmen, was a flop before achieving world-wide success and a place in the front row of the pantheon of immortal operas, by which time, unfortunately, Bizet had expired.
     BTW, kids, the difference between a tenor and a baritone is the difference between, respectively, Pavarotti and (yowsah!) Robert Goulet.

  1. That's always been one of my favorite duets, period. The hunky singers just add to the appeal.
