CRITIC REVIEW:

“In 1933 Orfenov found himself in a choir of Opera Theatre Studio under the direction of Stanislavski and a year after that he was a soloist of the Theater. In 1942 Orfenov began his career at the Bolshoi Theater, where he sang up to 1955. From 1950 he was engaged in teaching, as a lecturer in the Gnesin Musical-Pedagogical Institute (1950-1971), in Bolshoi Theatre (1963-1969), Cairo Conservatory (1971-1973), and Bratislava Conservatory (1974-1980). In 1980 to 1984 he was a director of the opera group of the Bolshoi.”
