Although now largely forgotten (and perhaps not without a reason, with regard to quality), Kourousopoulos was a fixture at the
Greek National Opera in Athens for almost 20 years.
He made his debut the on September 8th, 1942 as Cavaradossi with Maria Callas and Lakis Vassilakis. He sang only that single
performance and disappeared again; what he did over the next seven years still has to be found out.
He was back at the Greek National Opera in December 1949 and stayed for the rest of the season, singing Riccardo, Edgardo and
Thanos (in Perouze by Theophrastos Sakellaridis). Then follows another gap in his biography.
From spring 1954 to spring 1968, he was permanently at the Greek National Opera, and sang the following roles: Don Alvaro, Pinkerton,
Cavaradossi, Riccardo, Radames, Calaf, Otello, Fernand, Duca, Ismaele, Tannhäuser, Ernani, Gabriele Adorno, Manrico and Andrea
