Half of this post's title is totally justified by the photo above.
The new production of the Pearl Fishers of the Lyric Opera of Chicago has gathered on stage a bunch of the prettiest people in opera today.
Nathan Gunn, Nicole Cabell, Eric Cutler and Christian Van Horn among them.
Cabell and Cutler
But while others can display their charismas on stage....
Christian Van Horn as Nourabad couldn't...
Well, I suppose a topless high-priest of Brahma wouldn't be easily justified...
But here 's Christian Van Horn under all this beard...
OK, enough with the beauty talk. I wanna hear some voices.
Au fond du temple saint (Gunn+Cutler)
Je crois entendre encore (Cutler)
Les barques ont gagné - Comme autrefois (Van Horn+Cabell)
L'orage, s'est calmé (Gunn)
Finale (All Fantastic 4)
