Joseph Hauser by Unknown

Joseph Hauser by Unknown
Joseph Hauser (1828-1903); German baritone.
He was the son of the bass-baritone Franz Hauser (1794-1870), who was also his first singing teacher. In 1850 he made his debut at the “Hoftheater von Karlsruhe” as Riccardi in Bellini’s “I Puritani”. He remained in Karlsruhe almost 40 years and his repertoire included more than 130 roles. Richard Wagner invited Hauser to sing the role of Kurnewal in the première of “Tristan und Isolde” (1865) and the role of Alberich in the première of “Das Rheingold” (1869). But both times the Karlsruhe Hofoper refused Hauser a leave. In 1889 at Karlsruhe he retired from the stage as Hans Sachs in “Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg”. His wife, Maria Magdalene Hauser-Grashey (1829-1871), was also an opera and concert singer. She was engaged at Karlsruhe from 1853-1870.
