About Carl Bissuti:

Carl Bissuti (16 February 1899 in Stephanshart , Lower Austria – 14 September 1974) was an Austrian operatic bass

Born in Stephanshart, Bissuti originally aspired to the career of a railway official. In Asten he founded a Youth Choir  (youth choir). At a concert his voice caught the attention and the famous Salzburg Festival singer Richard Mayr campaigned for him to be accepted as a student at the Mozarteum. His singing teacher was Bianca Bianchi. In the 1922–23 season, he was engaged as choirist at the Salzburger Landestheater. This was followed by engagements as an actor, first for three seasons in Salzburg, then for two seasons in Linz. In 1928, he was engaged as a singer in Trier. This was followed by engagements in Troppau. (1932–33), Bielefeld (1933–34) and Darmstadt (1934–35).

In 1934, he was invited by Clemens Krauss for a guest performance at the Vienna State Opera - as Sarastro in The Magic Flute. Thereupon he was engaged at the Haus am Ring from 1935, where he sang almost everything that belonged to his subject, from Mozart to Kienzl, from Verdi to Wagner. The Austrian Theatre Museum features role models from Jaromír Weinberger's Wallenstein' and Lehár's The Land of Smiles'. From 1936 to 1939, he was engaged every summer at the Salzburg Festival. He there sang first under the musical direction of Arturo Toscanini (Magic Flute, Fidelio, Meistersinger of Nuremberg), by Bruno Walter (Così fan tutte) and by Felix von Weingartner (The Corregidor). After the annexation of Austria to Nazi Germany, he was given the title of "The Corregidor" by the conductors Wilhelm Furtwängler, (Meistersinger) and Hans Knappertsbusch (Fidelio, Freischütz and Tannhäuser) to Salzburg.
