Sergej Larin


Picture of Sergej Larin
Larin was born 9 March 1956 in Daugavpils, Latvia, into a Russian family. He studied in Vilnius (Lithuania) with Virgilius Noreika. Vilnius was also where he made his debut, in 1981. His Western debut took place at the Vienna State Opera in 1990, and from there, he quickly proceeded to every important opera house in the world: La Scala, Paris, the Bolshoj, Covent Garden, the Met, Buenos Aires, the Salzburg Festival, Beijing, Berlin and so forth.

Surprisingly, in the light of this great career, he kept a "home base", from 1992 to the end of his life, as a troupe member of the Slovak National Theater in Bratislava, a theater clearly below his level of excellence. He died in Bratislava, after a long illness, on 13 January 2008.
