“Still, I think that I would be appreciated more, if I were more politic, tactful, diplomatic, or, more simply, a liar.”
“In Russian art Chaliapin is an epoch like Pushkin”, – Maxim Gorky wrote.
A becoming of a legend began in the early childhood, when Chaliapin asked if he could sing in the church choir. And when he was twelve, Chaliapin first came to the theater and fell in love with it for a lifetime.
Future opera singer went through a lot – voice breaking, lack of demand, poverty, even suicidal thoughts. But the famous singer Dmitry Usatov helped him by giving free singing lessons, rehearsing with him the famous opera and introducing newcomer in a musical circle.
Soon Chaliapin succeeded and went to St. Petersburg, where he was invited to audition at the Mariinsky Theatre; he got enrolled in the troupe. Unfortunately, the critics have hindered his career.
However, Chaliapin did not give up and continued to improve his skills, and here he is – accepted enthusiastically in the Milan theater in the image of Mephistopheles. Together with Diaghilev Chaliapin conquered Paris and London, then Germany, America, South America, and finally he has become an internationally renowned artist.
Feodor Chaliapin has been first in Russia to receive the title of “People’s Artist of the Republic”. But Chaliapin has lost the title because of the Revolution and the persecution of the authorities; he had to move to Paris with his family. He used to say that the mass repressions were breaking people’s fates, and he didn’t want neither to be voluntary victim neither to “sing” Stalin.
In 1991, 53 years after his death, Chaliapin has got his “People’s Artist of the Republic” title back. In addition, he has received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for his achievements and contributions to the music field.
Feodor Chaliapin without a doubt has influenced the world opera development. His magnificent voice and the ability to transform into his characters excited the audience.
