In 1941, he started to sing operetta at the Endla Theater in Pärnu; from 1944, he was at the Tallinn opera, where he sang main roles in operetta and comprimario parts in opera: Edwin (Zirkusprinzessin), René (Graf von Luxemburg), Piquillo (Périchole), Adam (Vogelhändler), Beppe, Triquet, Vašek.

He stopped singing early, without quitting the stage, though: he became a very busy stage director, not just for operetta, but primarily for opera.
