Aix-en-Provence Festival - The Fiery Angel - Agrippa, Mephistopheles, July 2018

" ... and the surprise packet of the evening was Andrei Popov, whose voice ran rings around the tricky interventions of Agrippa and then blew us away with his entry as Mephistopheles: this is yet another opera where the devil gets the best lines."

- Bachtrack, David KarlinRead the article


Salzburg Festival - Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk - Drunkard

Andrei Popov gestaltete die Rolle des Schäbigen mit großer Intensität

Pour finir, saluons les voix du Wiener Staatsopernchor (préparées par Ernst Raffelsberger), et un plateau très satisfaisant dont on remarque l’Ivrogne généreusement impacté d’Andreï Popov et les artistes prometteurs de la promotion Young Singers Project : Ilya Koutioukine et Gleb Peryazev.

Mariinsky Theatre - Frau ohne Schatten - the Hunchback

Andrei Popov as the Hunchback (in Richard Strauss’ opera Die Frau ohne Schatten) was memorable for his witty portrayal of the role. 

- Musical Review


Mariinsky Theatre - The Enchanted Wanderer - the Prince, the Old Man in the Woods, the Storyteller, the Magnetiser and the Ghost of the Flogged Monk

Tenor Andrei Popov had the task of performing five roles all at once (in Rodion Shchedrin’s opera The Enchanted Wanderer): the Prince, the Old Man in the Woods, the Storyteller, the Magnetiser and the Ghost of the Flogged Monk. He coped magnificently: all five appeared with character, vividly, and the singer’s voice sounded stable, even and reasonably penetrating. 

- Nezavisimaya Gazeta


Mariinsky Theatre - Karetnikov - The Mystery of Paul the Apostle

Tenor Andrei Popov may be called the undoubted find of the performance, having acted as well as sung as Nero (in Nikolai Karetnikov’s opera The Mystery of Paul the Apostle).
