The tenor Miro Solman studied singing with the tenor Carlo Bergonzi, with whom he often performed on stage. Starting with the most important lyric and spinto roles in the operas Rigoletto, Don Carlos, Jerusalem, La bohème, Lucia di Lammermoor, Faust, The Tales of Hoffmann, Rusalka, Prince Igor, Eugene Onegin, and The Siege of Corinth, he continued with dramatic tenor roles in masterpieces such as Ernani, Il trovatore, Simon Boccanegra, Nabucco, Andrea Chénier, Carmen, Tosca, Iris, Cavalleria rusticana, Aida, Turandot, and Jacquerie. He toured in many countries around the world, mostly in Europe, Canada, South Korea, Turkey, Israel, Japan, Russia, China and South Africa. He also was a guest in virtually all major Italian opera houses: in Parma, Palermo, Genoa, Verona, Turin, Rome, Venice, Catania, Foggia, Messina, Tarvisio, Mantova, Como, Carrara, Jesi, Pisa, Trapani, Rovigo, to name just a few. In the 1994/1995 season he excelled as the protagonist in Marinuzzi’s opera Jacquerie (staged at the Teatro Massimo Bellini in Catania), and in the following year in leading role of Offenbach’s opera The Tales of Hoffmann (staged at the Verona opera house Teatro Filarmonico) along with the Italian soprano Luciana Serra. He was greatly praised by critics for his performance in Mascagni’s opera Iris (at Teatro Massimo Bellini in Catania), and later on in Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor in Cape Town, as well as at the Festival in Xanten (for the role of Radames in Verdi’s Aida). In 1997, he sang in The Tales of Hoffmann (Treviso, and Rovigo), Cavalleria rusticana (at Teatro Pergolesi in Jesi). In addition, he sung in operas such as Tosca, Rigoletto, Carmen, Don Carlos, and Turandot – mostly in Italy, Austria, Switzerland, Japan, Taiwan, and Portugal. His performance in Verdi’s Simon Boccanegra (Toulon, in the season 2000/2001) represents yet another peak of his career. In 2001, he participated in the production of Aida (directed by Franco Zeffirelli) in Busseto, which coincided with the centenary of Verdi's death and its subsequent commemoration Celebrazioni Verdiane. In 1997, he received a prestigious award Premio opitergium, so far only received by soprano Maria Chiara and internationally known entrepreneur Giuseppe Stefanel. For his artistic achievements, he also received an honorary title of the Order of Hospitallers.
