Russian singer (dramatic tenor) and teacher. People's Artist of the USSR (1938), doctor of the arts (1941). He studied singing in S. I. Gabel's singing class, graduating from the Petersburg Conservatory in 1893. He continued his studies in Italy in 1893 and 1894. He was a soloist at the Kharkov Opera Theater in 1894 and at the Mariinskii Theater from 1895 to 1929. Ershov became a teacher at the Conservatory in 1915, becoming a professor there in 1916. As a singer he was the first to play the parts of Vakula, Valerii, and Grishka Kuter'ma (in Rimsky-Korsakov's Christmas Eve, 1895; Servilia , 1902; and Legend of the Invisible City of Kitezh, 1907). The last role was the best in Ershov's repertoire. His portrayal of the title role in Verdi's opera Otello in 1929 was particularly successful. He played the parts of Khlopusha in Pashchenko's The Revolt of the Eagle (1925) and Truffal'dino in Prokofiev's Love for Three Oranges (1926). Ershov was also a concert singer. His interpretation of Mussorgsky's Songs and Dances of Death reached the heights of mastery. Ershov was awarded the Order of Lenin.
