It is perhaps like an insatiable drinker that Sung Jin Hong maintains such prolificacy--and with such a deft hand and approach to his original pieces.

I featured an amazing production of his on Classicalite before, one inspired by Walter White and the popular series Breaking Bad. His "bitch-aria" (a term coined by the artist) struck a chord with me and his Breaking Bad-Ozymandias opera took to major news outlets like the blue meth to junkies (see what I did there?)

Now, Hong breaks through with another original work, this time delving into a much more sinister and "hungry" evil.

Hannibal: A Serial Opera has hit the world wide web with, thanks to the lovely Adrienne Metzinger, a 50 second teaser promotional trailer on YouTube.

There's a certain modesty with Hong that's so alluring and so genuine that it shines through his work like light through a crack.

Thus, here is Hong's 50 second promo for his latest opera, Hannibal.
