Anton Mitterwurzer

Anton Mitterwurzer (1818–76) was a German opera singer, a noted baritone interpreter of the works of Gluck, Marschner, and Wagner.


He was born at Sterzing in the Tyrol. He made his first theatrical appearance at Innsbruck, and at twenty-one was engaged at Dresden, where he stayed for thirty years, and greatly influenced operatic methods. Mitterwurzer was at his best in such Wagnerian roles as Wolfram, Telramund, and Hans Sachs.
