Jorgo Stefanov

Jorgo Stefanov singsLa Gioconda: Enzo Grimaldo, principe di Santafior, with Kiril Krastev in Bulgarian
In RA format
A pupil of Petar Raichev, he was a house tenor of the opera theater in Ruse from the 1950s to 1980s. His complete Gioconda (apparently his only recording) was captured live at Ruse opera in 1958, and was a remarkable production – the second staging ever of Gioconda in Bulgaria (Bulgarian premiere had been only in 1934 in Sofia).

I would like to thank Vladimir Efimenko for the recording.
