Alfredo Kraus (1927 – 1999) famous tenor. He was of Spanish and German descent.

In 1956, Kraus made his professional operatic debut in Cairo as the Duke in Rigoletto, which became one of his signature roles. The following year, he sang in Alfredo at the Teatro Nacional São Carlos in Lisbon in a production of La Traviata with Maria Callas, a live recording of which was later released.

Kraus made his Covent Garden debut as Edgardo in 1959 and his La Scala debut as Elvino. He made his U.S. debut with Lyric Opera of Chicago 1962 and his Metropolitan Opera debut in 1966 in Rigoletto.

Kraus became to be virtually synonymous with such lyric tenor roles as Faust, Nemorino, Werther, Arturo and Don Ottavio.

Thanks to his superlative technique and careful husbanding of his vocal resources, Kraus sang onstage well into his early 70s.

In 1991, Kraus was awarded the Prince of Asturias Award.
