Passionstheater Oberammergau - Nabucco - Nabucco, 2015

Evez Abdulla ist der Star des Abends, was man zunächst, wenn er wie eine Königskarikatur auf seinem Pferd einreitet, nicht vermuten möchte. Dann aber klopft das Schicksal auch bei ihm mächtig an, und wenn er schließlich - Opfer des Früchtchens, das er großgezogen hat - ganz tief im Elend sitzt, wächst diesem Sänger zu seiner stimmlichen Gewalt eine Dimension im Menschlichen zu, die ans Herz rührt.

- Süddeutsche Zeitung, Hermann UnterstögerRead the article


Komische Oper Berlin - The Fiery Angel - Ruprecht, 2016

Fantastisch auch die Interpretation des Ruprecht durch den Bariton Evez Abdulla, dieses Getreuen, der  in einem Hotel zufällig als Zimmernachbar in den Bann der Renata gerät und sie auf diesem Höllentrip begleitet.

- Kaspar Sannemann, Oper AktuellRead the article


Dortmund Klangvokal - Edgar - Frank, 2016

Allein Evez Abdulla als Frank, der Bruder Fidelias und Bogdan Taloş, als Gualtiero, sein Vater überzeugen in ihren Nebenrollen von Anfang an. Abdullas Bariton hat eine sonore Frische, wie der Bass von Taloş kultiviert grundiert ist.

- Peter E. Rytz, Erpery WordpressRead the article

Evez Abdulla sang Frank, den Bruder der Fidelia. Der aus Aserbeidschan stammende Bariton verfügt, wie alle seine gestrigen Kolleginnen und Kollegen, über eine große internationale Erfahrung. Dies war deutlich spürbar. Sehr präsent im Gesang, viel Gefühl und kraftvoll da, wo Puccini es wollte.

- Detlef Obens, Opern MagazineRead the article


Stuttgart Opera - Luisa Miller - Miller, 2015

Die Szene zwischen Tochter und Vater im letzten Akt wurde in der Gestaltung durch die hoch emotional singende Adina Aaron und die warme, empathische Stimme Evez Abdullas zu einem der Höhepunkte des Abends.

- Christoph Wurzel, BachtrackRead the article


Mannheim Nationaltheater - Lucia di Lammermoor - Enrico, 2016/17

Evez Abdulla, der mit agilem Bariton als Enrico debütierte, zwang Lucia mit gepresster Stimme und aggressiver Geste zur Vernunftehe.

- Sarah Donata Schneider, BachtrackRead the article


Basel Theatre - La Forza del Destino - Don Carlo, 2016/17

…le formidable Carlos d’Evez Abdulla.

- Jean-Luc Clairet. Resmusica Read the article


Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra - Nasimi Passion - Baritone-Solo, 2017

Nasimi professes his beliefs in rising phrases, muezzin-like. Evez Abdulla sang them powerfully with airtight legato.

- Jenny Camilleri, Bachtrack, 10.04.2017Read the article
