Johannes Martin Kränzle (born 1962) is a German baritone in opera and concert who has made an international career.

He made his debut at the Royal Opera House as Don Alfonso in Mozart's Così fan tutte, and at the Bayreuth Festival as Beckmesser in Wagner's Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg in 2017.

Born in Augsburg, Kränzle learned to play the violin and composed two operas while a student of the local humanistisches Gymnasium St. Stephan. He studied direction of music theatre in Hamburg. He studied voice at the Hochschule für Musik und Darstellende Kunst Frankfurt am Main with Martin Gründler . His first theatre engagement was from 1987 to 1991 at the Theater Dortmund, followed by the Staatsoper Hannover from 1991 to 1997. Kränzle was a member of the Frankfurt Opera from 1998 to 2016.

In 2015, Kränzle was diagnosed with MDS and underwent a hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. He returned to the stage with a successful debut at the Royal Opera House in London as Don Alfonso in Mozart's Così fan tutte in September 2016. He made his debut at the Bayreuth Festival as Beckmesser in Wagner's Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg in 2017, conducted by Philippe Jordan and staged by Barrie Kosky, the first Jewish director at the Bayreuth Festival.
