I heard him as Lenski in Tchaikovsky's Eugene Onegin at the Met.

I have several Angel/EMI recordings by him: Faust, Barber of Seville, and Pinkerton in Puccini's Madama Butterfly

R.I.P.

The grim reaper is still very much in business, Digiti! This time, removing a golden voice----who fortunately has left many recordings , so we can continue to listen and appreciate his enormous talent.

He is one of the fortunate ones who lived to a ripe old age; not one whose life ended much to soon. Opera is not a genre with which I am very familiar, apart from a few exceptions, but I heard other of his musical repetiore as I scanned the Internet---and enjoyed listening to his lovely voice.

R.I.P. Nicolai Gedda.

Regards,

Polly.
