Kurt Equiluz, born Vienna June 13th, 1929, had a considerable oratorio career. In opera, he appeared at the Vienna Staatsoper
from 1950 to 1983, first as a chorister, from 1957 as a comprimario – I heard him regularly in his last years, and he
was one of those comprimari who can harm a performance even
in smallest roles. Already from 1964, he was also a very active teacher. He died shortly after his 93rd birthday, on
June 20th, 2022.
