Domgraf-Fassbänder’s Glyndebourne years were 1934-35 and 1937, and his rôles there included Papageno, Figaro and Guglielmo, his admirable stage presence greatly admired.

After 1954 he taught at the Nuremberg Conservatory where his pupils included his daughter, the much admired Brigitte Fassbaender.
