Several Italian newspapers have acclaimed Yusif Eyvazov as a frontline performer after his La Scala debut on Thursday night in Andrea Chenier opposite his radiant wife, Anna Netrebko.

And definitely the production was loudly applauded, despite a (very) few scattered boos at the dozenth curtain call.
So was La Scala’s opening night the making of Eyvazov?
