Reinhold Güther

2 December 1911 Berlin – 11 January 1990 Zürich
After extensive studies at the Berlin academy of music, he made his debut in the 1938/39 season in Greifswald. 1939/40, he sang in Lübeck, where he also continued his career in 1947 after a war-related interruption. 1950–52, he was in Bremen, and 1952–69 in Zürich, where he stayed after the end of his singing career, and worked until 1977 as an orchestra attendant for the Tonhalle-Orchester.

He sang a variety of roles from Don Ottavio to Radames, from Fra Diavolo to Bacchus, plus a lot of contemporary works; but his real specialty was probably operetta.
