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.

  • 07.12.2017 - Interview with tenor Yusif Eyvazov

  • Tenor Yusif Eyvazov is a brave man indeed. Tonight, he makes his debut at La Scala… in the title role… on the opening night of the season. Many have gone down in flames with just one of these responsibilities, and the ‘loggionisti’ are waiting. He says,

    "I’ve already accepted that there may be boos. It’s December 7th, at La Scala…. a temptation difficult to resist for the booers. But I will do everything I can to be liked and respected by the audience.

    When the role was first suggested two years ago I immediately said no. Then I thought about it. What was I waiting for? My career only began ten years ago, with my first real role at the Bolshoi in Tosca in 2009. But I am 40 years old – the time had come to take that step.

    I have been studying this opera for two years now and nothing has been left to chance. I’ve put some of its arias in the concerts I do with Anna, and in January I debuted in the role in Prague to understand its difficulties in front of an audience."
