Kammersänger Anton Dermota (1910 – 1989) was a Slovene tenor, born in a poor family in the Upper Carniolan village of Kropa in what was then the Austro-Hungarian Empire (and is now in Slovenia). In 1934 he received a scholarship which sent him to Vienna.

Dermota made his debut at the opera in Cluj in 1934, and was promptly invited by Bruno Walter to perform at the Wiener Staatsoper. Here he made his début as a Man in Armor in Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's The Magic Flute in 1936 and got a contract immediately. His first leading role was Alfredo in Giuseppe Verdi's La traviata, which he sang in 1937. In the same year Dermota made his début at the Salzburg Festival in a production of Richard Wagner's Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg, conducted by Arturo Toscanini.
