Nicolai Ghiarrov

(September 13, 1929 – June 2, 2004)


Nicolai Ghiaurov was a Bulgarian opera singer and one of the most famous bass singers of the post-war period.

He was much admired for his powerful, sumptuous voice, and was particularly associated with the roles of Verdi.

Nicolai Ghiaurov married the Italian soprano Mirella Freni in 1978. The two singers who lived in Modena up until Ghiaurov's death in 2004, regularly performed together.
