The talented tenor was Vladislav Golikov. He died in December 2016 in a plane crash w/ his comrades of the Alexandrov Ensemble Choir aka Red Army Choir. You can hear him also singing Nessun Dorma (original version) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=76te32JKxes

Judging from what Petros Linardos said ( based on what NN informed us about) I am disposed to put “- (negative) 1 ” for what Jean and Doug typed here …. just my opinion, of course ….
May God rest his soul and all those who died in tragedy of the plane crash .Golikov had a great voice now he is in the heavens with the rest of the Alexandrov Ensemble.His Nessan Dormant was brilliantly sung I will miss him and all those other talented singers and dancers.May God bless them and keep them in heaven for all eternity.
