Picture of  Štefan Margita

Štefan Margita was born in the Slovak city of Kosice where he studied at the conservatory and obtained his first operatic engagement. Having won first prize in the singing competition at Teplice in 1984, he embarked on parallel career as a concert singer, in the following year appearing at the Prague Spring Festival, in Bach's Magnificat. Winning a singing competition organized as part of that festival's 1986 edition earned him an engagement with the Prague National Theatre. In 1987, he became soloist of the Wiener Volksoper, and subsequent years have seen him as Ottavio at Stuttgart and Berlin. His stage repertoire covers works, including notably Czech operas (Smetana, Dvorak, Janacek,Martinu), as well as lirical parts in the international repertoire, in operas by Beethoven, Donizetti, Verdi, and Tchaikovsky.
