Sergej Mikhajlovich Kadantsev

23 March 1941 Moscow – 25 January 2010 Voronezh

Kadantsev as Duca

His start into the artistic world was pretty unusual for someone who eventually became an opera singer: he studied at the Kiev Studio for Circus and Vaudeville, graduating in 1967. The next three years were spent with a touring concert organization (I suppose as a vaudevillian, not sure though), before he enrolled in the Kiev conservatory and studied classical singing until 1975.

From 1975 to 1979, he was a soloist at the Kiev Opera and Ballet Theater. In 1979, he went to Voronezh, where he was to stay for the rest of his life, singing at the opera theater, and from 1995 onwards, teaching voice. He toured Poland, Bulgaria, Hungary, Czechoslovakia, the UK, Greece and Cyprus.

His operatic repertory included Lenskij, German, Lykov, Berendej, Duca, Don Carlo, Alfredo, Riccardo, Faust, José or Cavaradosssi. In his concerts, he sang Italian songs and Soviet war songs, primarily.
