Noreika was born in Šiauliai on 22 September 1935. He graduated with honors
from the Lithuanian State Conservatory in 1958. A year earlier, while still
a student, he was engaged as a performer at the National Opera and Ballet
Theater of Lithuania. In 1959, Noreika sang the part of Alfredo Germont in
Verdi's La traviata, one of Noreika's favorite and most frequently performed
roles. Later in 1965, he continued his career at the La Scala, in Milan.
There he mastered six new roles, and also sang the part of Pinkerton, from
Puccini's Madame Butterfly.

Noreika's creative biography comprises more than 40 operatic roles:
Cavaradossi Faust, Rudolfo, Otello, to name a few. Noreika performed in
Moscow at the Bolshoi Theatre, in Buenos Aires at the Teatro Colón, in Paris
at the Opéra National de Paris, and many other famous Opera houses. Noreika
has sung in more than 30 foreign theaters, participated in more than 1000
performances, given approximately 600 solo concerts, recorded 20
phonographic records and CDs. In 1997, he celebrated his 40th anniversary as
an operatic tenor, and received the Kipras Award from the Opera Fellow
Society. Noreika, semi-retired, was a Professor at the Lithuanian Academy of
Music and Theatre and the Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre.
