Helge Rosvaenge (Roswaenge, Rosv nge), Helge Anton Rosenvinge Hansen, (August 29, 1897 in Copenhagen - June 17, 1972 in Munich) was a famous Danish operatic tenor whose career was centred on Germany and Austria, before, during and after World War II. He made his debut at Neustrelitz as Don Jose in Carmen in 1921. Engagements followed at Altenburg, Basle, Cologne (1927-30) and the Berlin State Opera, where he was leading tenor from 1930 to 1944, being especially distinguished in the Italian repertory.
