Rudolf Bockelmann (1892-1958) was from Bodenteich near Celle. After studies in philology and music at the University and Conservatory in Leipzig, he volunteered for war service and was wounded several times. He made his début in Celle in 1920 and from 1921 to 1926 sang at the Leipzig Opera. His first season at Bayreuth was 1928 and he returned regularly until 1942. In the meantime he enjoyed a brilliant international career, mainly in Wagnerian rôles. His few recordings sadly included songs with a blatant Nazi agenda. After the war he sang only in Hamburg and at the smaller German theatres, retiring in 1957.
