Press statement from the Met:
Yusif Eyvazov will sing Hermann in the performances of Tchaikovsky’s The Queen of Spades on November 29 and December 2 and 5, replacing Aleksandrs Antonenko, who has withdrawn due to illness.
Eyvazov, who was called in late to cover the second half of the run, has taken over the whole run.
He started the season with just one booking at the Met – the New Year’s Gala.
This ought to ease Mrs Eyvazov’s concerns.
