Yusif Eyvazov cuts the last knotNews
When Anna Netrebko found the world’s opera houses closing their doors to her over Putin’s Ukraine invasion, she fired her longstanding agent, Judith Neuhoff, at Universal-owned Centre Stage Management, as well as her record label, Deutsche Grammophon.
Her husband, the Azerbaijani tenor Eyvazov, was not subject to the same sanctions and clung on to his music-biz buddies.
Until last night, when he fired Neuhoff and signed up with a start-up Arcadia Artists run by Odesa-born Veronika Arkhangel, a former Metropolitan Opera talent booker (grandly titled Associate Director, Artistic Planning).
On August 2, 2022, Yusif Eyvazov announced his new general management – Arcadia Artists, represented by Veronika Arkhangel.
Veronika, who spent the last sixteen years at The Metropolitan Opera and before that, worked for several years at Columbia Artists Management LLC (CAMI). She comes with a wealth of experience of working with artists, as well as an extensive knowledge of the performing arts industry.
Stefania Gamba will oversee the engagements in Italy.
