Tauber, Richard

Richard Tauber (tou´bər), 1891–1948, Austrian tenor. He made his debut (1913) in Chemnitz, Germany, as Tamino in Mozart's Magic Flute. Later he sang in opera and concert all over Europe and made his American debut in 1931. Although he was noted for his operatic roles and as a lieder singer, Tauber was best known for his work in operettas, particularly those of Lehar; in 1946 he appeared in New York City in Yours Is My Heart, an adaptation of Lehar's Land of Smiles. In 1938 he fled Austria, becoming a British subject in 1940.
