"Chilean-born Ramon Vinay began his operatic career as a baritone (Mexico City, 1938), singing many of the major baritone roles, but after study with tenor René Maison, he began a second career as a tenor (Mexico City, 1943), and after a long, distinguished career as a tenor, returned to the baritone repertoire in the 1960s, retiring in 1969 with a final Iago. He was most noted for tenor roles requiring great heft and power. His services were in demand everywhere."
