About Theodor Bertram:

Theodor Bertram (12 February 1869 – 24 November 1907) was a German bass-baritone prominent in the operas of Richard Wagner. A regular performer at the Bayreuth Festival from 1901 to 1906, he was greatly admired for his portrayals of Wagnerian heroes and particularly Wotan. Bertram was born in Stuttgart and died by suicide in Bayreuth following the death of his second wife, Lotte Wetterling. His first wife was the soprano Fanny Moran-Olden who was also a prominent Wagnerian singer.

Bertram was born in Stuttgart to the baritone Heinrich Bertram (1825-1903) and the soprano Marie Bertram-Mayer (1838-1882). He was trained in singing by his father and made his debut at the age of twenty in the small role of The Hermit in Der Freischütz at the city theatre of Ulm. Bertram was then engaged at the Hamburg Opera in 1891, the Berlin Kroll Opera in 1892, and the Munich Court Opera in 1893. Bertram remained with the Munch Court Opera until 1899 singing there in three world premieres. He also achieved great success in the roles of Hans Sachs and Wotan at the Munich Wagner Festival.

The end of 1899 saw Bertram singing with the Metropolitan Opera, both on tour to Boston, Philadelphia, Chicago, and Cincinnati and in the main opera house in New York City. He made his company debut on 2 December 1899 as Wotan in Die Walküre and remained with the company until April 1901 singing in a total of 78 performances. His other Wagnerian roles at the Met were Telramund in Lohengrin, The Dutchman in Der Fliegende Holländer, Wolfram in Tannhäuser, Hans Sachs in Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg, and Kurwenal in Tristan und Isolde. He also appeared with the company as Herr Fluth in Die Lustige Weibern von Windsor, Pizarro in Fidelio, and in the title role of Don Giovanni.
