Opera Singer. He was an Austrian operatic bass-baritone singer particularly admired for his theatrical performances. He made his professional opera debut to critical acclaim at the Bayreuth Festival in 1902, which led to him being engaged as a principal singer at the Vienna Hofoper for three decades. From 1911 to 1913 and in 1924, he sang at the Royal Opera in London and for three consecutive seasons at the Metropolitan Opera New York City, in the 1930s. He was also a mainstay at the Salzburg Festival, appearing every year there from 1921, until his retirement from the stage in 1934. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
