Dimitrie Onofrei

Picture of Dimitrie Onofrei
He started singing in Bucarest, but just briefly, then he went to Milan for further studies and made his "real" debut at the Royal Theatre in Malta in 1922 (as Duca di Mantova). In 1925, he made his US debut at the Century Theatre, New York. He seems to have stayed primarily in the USA and finished his singing career only in 1962. He was then a professor at the Cincinnati and Chicago conservatories.
