Herbert Janssen (1892 - 1965)

Herbert Janssen was born into a wealthy, music-loving family of Swedish origin and received his first singing lessons when young. Having studied law at Berlin University and served as an officer in World War I, he subsequently studied singing in Berlin with Oscar Daniel. He was immediately accepted by Max von Schillings for the Berlin State Opera, where he made his debut in 1922 as Herod in Schreker’s Der Schatzgräber. Initially he was assigned smaller parts, but gradually his repertoire expanded: he sang Wolfram / Tannhäuser, the role for which he was to become most renowned, during the 1923–1924 season in Berlin. Other roles included the Count / Le nozze di Figaro, di Luna / Il trovatore, Faninal / Der Rosenkavalier, Gérard / Andrea Chénier, Albert / Werther, Valentin / Faust (Gounod), Don Pizarro / Fidelio, Lothario / Mignon, Renato / Un ballo in maschera, Iago / Otello, Don Carlo / Ernani, Escamillo / Carmen and the title role in Rigoletto..
