“The impressive cast, with many Russian singers, is headed by the compelling bass Ildar Abdrazakov in the title role… Solid and ruggedly handsome, Mr. Abdrazakov is a confident actor…his voice is firm and robust…He is a fine singer of Italian repertory, and his Igor has moments of Italianate lyrical refinement. He brings passion, even a touch of neediness, to his exchanges with his devoted wife, Yaroslavna, the Ukrainian soprano Oksana Dyka in her Met debut.” —Anthony Tommasini, The New York Times
