Vyacheslav Polosov, who is more often referred to as Polozov is Ukrainian, was born in 1950, studied at the Kiev
Conservatory, and was a member of the Minsk Opera with frequent guest appearances at the Bolshoi (his Bolshoi debut took place
in 1982 as Alfredo).
In 1986, he defected to the West, making his Met debut as Pinkerton in 1987.
