Gašper Dermota was an engine fitter like almost everybody else in his family. During after-work hours, he studied voice in
Ljubljana, where he finally became a member of the local opera house, and where he spent his entire career. He died, together with his son, in a car accident.
His debut was in 1952 and his repertory included Duca, Nemorino, Edgardo, Lesnky, Jenik, Werther.
