Valentin Haller (Tenor) (Munich, Germania 1901 - Munich, Germania 1944)

He began his career in 1924 in Gera. In Berlin he excited a sensation, when he sang the part of Manrico in ‘’Trovatore’’. He died, only 43 years old, as a result of a spinal injury. His brother under the name Hans Florian (1894-1979) also had a successful career as an opera singer.
