Hans Hopf (August 2, 1916, Nuremberg - June 25, 1993, Munich) was a German operatic tenor, one of the leading heldentenors of the immediate postwar period. He studied in Munich with Paul Bender, and made his stage debut with a touring opera ensemble, as Pinkerton, in 1936. He then sang in Augsburg (1939-42), Dresden (1942-43), and Oslo (1943-44). He joined the Berlin State Opera in 1946, and the Munich State Opera, in 1949. He appeared in Bayreuth in 1951, as Walther, returning as Siegmund, Siegfried, Tannh user, and Parsifal. His performance at Bayreuth in 1951 was also notable for his remarkable contribution to one of the finest recordings of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony ever committed to disk; under the direction of legendary conductor Wilhelm Furtw ngler. He sang Max at the Salzburg Festival in 1954. He made guest appearances in Milan, London, New York and Buenos Aires.show more
