Aleksander Myszuga (May 20, 1853 – March 9, 1922) (sometimes spelled Ołeksandr Mishuga or Olexander Myshuga) was a Ukrainian operatic tenor and voice teacher of Ukrainian descent. He studied voice with Walery Wysocki in Lwów and with Giovanni Sbriglia in Paris. During the last two decades of the 19th century and the first decade of the 20th century he performed with major European opera houses, including making appearances at the Teatr Wielki, Warsaw, the Mariinsky Theatre, the Paris Opera, and the Vienna State Opera. After retiring from the stage, he taught singing in Kiev from 1905–1911 and then in Warsaw from 1911–1914. He established a music school in Stockholm in 1918.[1]
