No, Flames on Stage are Not Daring

Especially in a modern house with fire marshalls making sure you won't burn down the building:
In this production’s one theatrically daring touch, real flames shoot up from the floor around Giovanni’s dinner table as we watch him descend into hell.
And apparently the word of the year is "hearty:"
A hearty young Polish baritone... 
...the hearty bass Joshua Bloom...

"Hearty" seems to have replaced "strapping" when referring to handsome, young male singers in Mr. Tommasini's lexicon.
