After WWII, he studied voice; in 1947, he was accepted into the operatic studio of the Berlin State Opera, where he became a regular member in 1950. 1952/53, he sang in Hagen, 1953–56 in Cologne, 1956–59 in Mannheim, 1959/60 in Augsburg.

For the rest of his career, he worked as a freelance artist. He made a lot of guest appearances on an international level: Bayreuth, Lyon, Monte Carlo, Strasbourg, Venice, Lisbon, Covent Garden, Vienna State Opera, Paris.

His repertory was varied indeed: Siegmund, Tannhäuser, Melot, Froh, Loge, Bacchus, Herodes, Tambourmajor, Ruggiero in Händel's Alcina, Shujskij, Florestan, Barinkay, Paris...

After leaving the stage, he disappeared from public attention, and nothing is known about his death.
