Yusif Eyvazov

Yusif Eyvazov is Azerbaijani dramatic tenor, who completed his advanced studies in Italy. There he took part in master classes with renowned opera singers such as tenor Franco Corelli and soprano Ghena Dimitrova. Since then there is hardly a major opera house that has not yet invited him to sing, including the Berlin, Munich and Vienna State Operas, Milan’s La Scala, Opera National de Paris, Royal Opera House, Metropolitan Opera, Bolshoi and Mariinsky theatres etc. The unique sound of his voice, described as “metallic, stentorian and markedly Italianate” (L.A. Times), and outstanding stage presence allow him to combine active opera career with frequent concert performances.
