Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Karl Scheidemantel (b. 29 January 1859 in Weimar - 26 June 1923 in Dresden) was a baritone singer, and later an opera director. The son of a Weimar court artist, Scheidemantel found great success in various roles in the operas of Richard Wagner. Among his supporters were Bodo Borchers in Weimar, well known voice teacher Julius Stockhausen in Frankfurt, and composer Franz Liszt. At age 25 he joined the ensemble of the Dresden Hofoper where he was named a "Chamber Singer to the Saxon Grand Duke" in 1884. He sang at the 1886, 1888, 1891, and 1892 Bayreuth festivals.show more
