Andrey Zhilikhovsky makes his debut at the Opéra Nice Côte d’Azur as the title role in Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin. He most recently performed this role at the Icelandic Opera, where he received rave reviews.
“…most notable being the title role sung by the Moldovan baritone, Andrey Zhilikhovsky, something of an Onegin specialist. His was a splendid performance, matching a lovely rich voice with (and this is essential) the ability to turn from a libertine charmer into a man utterly broke by the missed opportunity for happiness and fulfilment.” (Neil Jones, Opera Now, January 2017)
“Onegin himself evolved compellingly from terrifying control to sick-dog delirium- and was sung with eloquent focus by the Moldovan baritone Andrey Zhilikhovksy.” (Hilary Finch, Opera Magazine, February 2017)
Future engagements include Malatesta Don Pasquale at Glyndebourne, La bohème at the Opera de Paris, Il Barbiere di Siviglia at the Washington Opera National Opera and his debut at the Metropolitan Opera.
Watch Andrey sing ‘Uzhel ta samaja Tatiana’ from his performance of Eugene Onegin at the Icelandic Opera here.
Performances run from 15-21 February 2017. For more information, see the Opéra Nice Côte d’Azur website.
