Theodor Reichmann (15 March, 1849 - 22 May, 1903)
 
Theodor Reichman made is debut at Magdeburg, Germany in 1869. The noted baritone studied in Berlin, Milan, and Prague. He kept a busy schedule of stage engagements in Berlin, Hamburg, and Munich between 1883 and 1889, and was on stages in Strasburg (1893) and Vienna (1903). Reichmann is best known for his roles in Wagner operas. He introduced the character of Amfortas in the opera, "Parsifal" at Bayreuth in 1882. He also sang Wagner roles at Covent Garden. During the Metropolitan Opera season of 1889/90 he performed the lead role in Wagner's opera, "Der Fliegende Hollander" ("The Flying Dutchman"), and this photograph dates to those performances in New York.
