Jaroslav Ulrych singsAida: Celeste Aida, in Czech
A forced laborer in Germany from 1942 to 1945, he studied voice after returning home and made his debut in 1948 in Liberec; from 1949 and for the rest of his career, he was a member of the Brno opera theater. In the first half of the 1950s, he was a frequent guest at the Prague National Theater. He sang many classical Czech roles (Prince in Rusalka, Lukáš in Hubička, Jirka in Čert a Káča, Jarek in Čertova stěna, Dalibor), as well as Samson, Don Carlo, Radames, Florestan, Lohengrin or Cavaradossi. But his true specialty were the operas of Janáček, and he was praised for both Laca and Števa, for Mazal in Výlety pana Broučka, and for Skuratov in Z mrtvého domu.
