NACHBAUR, Franz, a noted German tenor, born March 25, 1835, at Schloss Giessen, near Friedrichshafen, Wurtemburg. He was educated at the Polytechnic School, Stuttgard. As a member of a Gesangverein, his fine voice attracted the notice of Pischek, who advised him to take regular instruction in singing. He began his career as a chorister at Basle, and afterwards became a member of a German troupe travelling in France. Through the liberality of M. Passavant, a banker at Luneville, he found means for the culture of his voice, first through Orti, the bass singer, and afterwards with Lamperti of Milan. He afterwards sang in opera at Mannheim, Prague, Darmstadt, Vienna, and in 1866 at Munich, where he obtained a permanent engagement at the opera. More recently he has sung in Italy, and created Lohengrin at Rome in 1878.
