The guy landed the cover of the Metropolitan Opera's semi-house-organ magazine, Opera News [February 2014]

I also heard him interviewed (briefly) on a MET broadcast of Eugene Onegin. He makes the too-often-neglected point that the Onegin character isn't the turned heel that he's frequently made out to be. If he was, he would (like Don Giovanni and the Duke of Mantua) exploit Tatiana- rather than initially rejecting her, however brusquely.

Abdrazakov will be on The Big Screen in early March, in a MET Live-in-HD performance of Borodin's Prince Igor.
