Vilhelm Herold (Tenor) (Hasle, Bornholm 1865 - Copenhagen 1937)




He made his debut (1893) as Faust at the Royal Danish Theater in Copenhagen. He appeared in Stockholm, London, Hamburg, Berlin, Prague, and Stuttgart, among other cities. In Oslo (1913) he was Pedro in a performance of Tiefland in which Flagstad made her operatic debut as Nuri. Although his voice was trained in the French repertory, he spent the majority of his career in Scandinavia and Germania singing German roles. After his retirement he served as Director of the Royal Danish Theater (1922-24), where his career had begun. As a vocal teacher, Herold was responsible for retraining Lauritz Melchior's voice from baritone to tenor. His voice was often compared to Jean de Reszke's.
