We are proud to announce that Berin Iglesias Art has signed an agreement on exclusive representation of one of the opera’s most thought-after basses Ildar Abdrazakov in Russia, CIS countriesand the Baltics.
Since making his La Scala debut in 2001 at 25, the Russian singer has become a mainstay at leading houses worldwide, including New York’s Metropolitan Opera, the Vienna State Opera, Munich’s Bavarian State Opera, Mariinsky theatre and others. His powerful yet refined voice coupled with his compelling stage presence have prompted critics to hail him as a “sensational bass… who has just about everything – imposing sound, beautiful legato, oodles of finesse” (The Independent). Also an active concert artist, he has performed at London’s BBC Proms and at New York’s Carnegie Hall, as well as leading international orchestras, including the Chicago Symphony and Vienna Philharmonic.
Abdrazakov is a twice Grammy award winner whose repertoire includes the roles of Don Juan and Leporello (in Mozart’s “Don Juan”), Mephistopheles (in Guno’s “Faust”, Boito’s “Mephistopheles” and Berlioz’s “The Damnation of Faust”), king Philippe II (in Vedi’s “Don Carlos”), Attila (in Verdi’s “Attila”), Boris Godunov (in Musorgski’s “Boris Godunov”).
