Ernest Van Dyck (Tenor) (Antwerp 1861- Berlaar 1923)
For a short time he studied law and worked as a
journalist before beginning singing lessons with, among others, the composers
Chabrier and Massenet, an association that led to his creation of Massenet's
Werther in 1892. His first appearance in Bayreuth
was in 1888 as Parsifal. Although he did not have the most beautiful voice, his
intelligence and the ability to learn roles on short notice were a godsend to
opera house managements.
