Ludikar (real name, Vyskočil), Pavel, Czech bass-baritone; b. Prague, March 3,1882; d. Vienna, Feb. 19,1970. He studied law in Prague, and then took piano lessons, acquiring sufficient proficiency to accompany singers. He then finally devoted himself to his real profession, that of opera singing, and studied with Lassalle in Paris. He made his operatic debut as Sarastro at the Prague National Theater (1904), then appeared in Vienna, Dresden, and Milan; was a member of the Boston Civic Opera (1913–14). He made his Metropolitan Opera debut in N.Y. as Timur in Turandot on Nov. 16, 1926; remained on its roster until 1932; also sang with Hinshaw’s touring opera company. He essayed the role of Figaro in II Barbiere di Siviglia more than 100 times in the U.S. He created the title role in Krenek’s opera Karl V (Prague, June 22, 1938).

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
