Golden Age Singer of the Week--Sergei Lemeshev

I bring you a great Russian tenor unknown to me before today, Sergei Lemescev. He was the Russian Caruso, with countless adoring fans of his singing and followers of his personal life. Here he is singing his signature role, Lensky (apparently a live film in 1936):

Here he is singing Nemorino (no date or performance particulars given):

And later as Cavaradossi (again no particulars given):
