Zambello's Don Giovanni

Nowadays, Don Giovanni is about singing shirtless. The Francesca Zambello production at the ROH is well-known for the final scene where the baritone performs shirtless! Since there have been many revivals of the production, there are lots of good pictures of different baritones. Pick your favourite! I personally like Schrott and Kwiecien...

Erwin Schrott:

Simon Keenlyside:

Mariusz Kwiecien:

Gerald Finley:

Bryn Terfel:

Very enjoyable blog - at the end of this production FZ wanted the Don to be naked for a brief scene in hell, and so far some of them have obliged - Keenlyside, Kwiecien and Schrott most memorably

Wow, never saw it from this side. First of all its the voice which counts, right.

I just stumbled over your blog looking for pictures of Keenlyside.
I love it! I will add you to my blogroll, you can check out my blog -- vaguely connected with opera -- too, if you like.

Well...Simon-Templar-Keenlyside obliged more than once in taking his shirt-and-even-something-more. In his not-so-short career he left a long trail of undressed photos....
