In RA format
Miroslav Frydlewicz was a Czech tenor. He sang in Opava, at the National Theatre of Prague and two years at the Berlin State
Opera. He had a beautiful voice with excellent broad high notes. His best roles were: Jeník, Nemorino, Duca, Otello,
Riccardo, Turiddu, Cavaradossi, Pinkerton, Max, Lohengrin, Loge, Siegmund, Lenskij and many others.
I wish to thank Michal Pekárek for the biographical notes, picture and recording.
Frydlewicz studied at the conservatory in Prague with Jan Berlík. While still a student, he started singing in Opava (Max, Duca, Jirka in Čert a
Káča) in 1957. 1959 to 1965, he sang in Plzeň (Jiří in Jakobín, Alfredo,
Pinkerton, Hoffmann). From 1965 to 1992, he was at the Prague National Theater (with guest appearances in the German Democratic
Republic, more specifically in Berlin and Leipzig), then until 1998 at the Prague State Opera. He grew into the heldentenor
repertory, including both Siegfrieds, Siegmund and Loge. He also sang a lot on Czechoslovakian radio and TV.
