American singer, regarded as the world's finest dramatic baritone. The son of Russian immigrants, Warren joined his family fur business in New York. In 1935 however he joined the Radio City Music Hall Chorus. Three years later he auditioned at the Met, making his concert debut in November 1938 and his formal operatic debut three months later on January 13, 1939. He performed with the New York Metropolitan Opera Company alone over 600 times in the 21 years between 1939 and 1960. It was at the Met that he made his debut in 1939. And it was there he died onstage on March 4, 1960 at about 10:20 PM EST during a performance of La Forza del Destino, age 48. He had suffered a major and fatal heart attack.
