Old news: A Greek debuts at the Met

Greek bass Christophoros Stamboglis debuted at the Met as Don Basilio in "Il Barbiere di Siviglia" on October the 10th, substituting Orlin Anastassov,
next to Joyce DiDonatoBarry Banks, Rodion Pogossov etc.

My spies inform me that Stamboglis' Calunnia, brought the house down.
Any recording out there?

Mr. Stamboglis substituted Orlin Anastassov at one of his regular performances or he covered him at the rehearsals...???
