From late night infomercials to the New York Times: the pretty kids of opera, Amici Forever. It’s only because classical music is so badly marketed in general that these guys are getting any sort of props for “popularizing” opera. With a name like Amici Forever (destined to become a boat anchor as soon as the group breaks up), and with collars like those the guys are wearing in the photos, this group would be an also ran if it weren’t for the classical angle.
Or maybe I’m just grumpy this morning because none of the groups I was in ever got that kind of press. Sniff.
Oh well. At least they don’t have to go topless to get attention from the music press.
