Nudity in Opera? The Full Monty!

And speaking of innovations, nudity in Opera is not something new...Nude Salomés, some nude Carmen, nude Violettas were always in cartellone...Lets peep at some pics.
XXX Explicit Content.

The following are photos from a production of the opera
ERCOLE SU´L TERMODONTE
by Antonio Vivaldi, given in Spoletto in July 2006...



I dont think i should explain anything about what we see in this foto...



Yes, this is Hercules...His name is Zachary Stains, in case you wanna google him (or stalk him), and yes, size does matter...



This is the beloved greek mezzo Mary Ellen Nesi and yes, those are boobs.



Ercole/Hercules and his mighty lion...
