Abs of a Soldier

La Cieca has obtained this photo of Thomas Hampson headlining Camouflage Night at Powerhouse, uh, rehearsing for Heart of a Soldier at the San Francisco Opera. You can tell the scene is Northern Rhodesia in 1962, because that is where the British military first started offering complimentary personal training packages to their troops.

Actually, the “Extremely Fit Men” are courtesy of director Francesca Zambello, who could find a way to shoehorn beefcake into Sense and Sensibility.
