Ildar Abdrazakov: A Hunky Attila

I'm not sure how the Russian bass Ildar Abdrazakov has eluded a place on Barihunks. However, the gorgeous photo of him from the new Metropolitan Opera brochure for the 2009-20 season is an attention grabber. He'll be singing the title role of Attila at The Met, a role he's singing right now at the Teatro Municipal del Callaoin in Lima, Peru.

Abrazakov was born in Ufa in 1976, where he studied at the Institute for Arts.

He attained notoriety with the release of Rossini's Mose et Faraon on DVD. With his hairy chest and oversized features, he will certainly make Attila a barihunk role. He already has Escamillo, Mephistopheles and Don Giovanni in his barihunk repertoire.
