The baritone has a great success in Detroit as the tap dancing Figaro in The Barber of Seville
Rodion Pogossov was hailed by critics as a “world-class Figaro” with a “rich, clear voice, marrying warm colour, supple phrasing and pinpoint distinction” by Mark Stryker from Detroit Free Press, after the premiere last Sunday night.
Patty Nolan from The Examiner has also said; “his voice is wonderful and seems effortless- but what stunned the MOT audience is that Pogossov not only sings, he also tap dances, juggles and walks on his hands. This guy is a performer, and the audience loved him.”

The final performance of The Barber of Seville takes place tomorrow evening at Michigan Opera Theatre.
