Richard Tauber

From Austria, and born on 16 May 1891, the tenor later known as Richard Tauber studied mostly in Germany, and sang in both opera (especially Mozart) and operetta. Later he composed musicals, but his love of operetta and the Mozart roles remained. His final appearance at London's Covent Garden was as Ottavio in Don Giovanni in 1947, and he died on 8 January 1948, aged fifty-six.
