Anton Van Rooy


(1870-1932), Dutch bass-baritone from Rotterdam, made his Met debut as Wotan in Walküre on December 14, 1898, and sang leading roles with the company for nine seasons. His appearances as Amfortas in the Met's 1903 Parsifal resulted in his being banned from further appearances in Bayreuth, where he had sung the Dutchman, Sachs, and Wotan in Ring cycles. During 1902-03 at the Metropolitan, he sang Wolfram in Tannhäuser, Kurvenal in Tristan, all three Wotans, Telramund, and Sachs. For twenty-four performances he was paid $15,075.83. In addition to his Wagnerian roles, he also sang at the house Don Fernando in Fidelio, King Solomon in Die Königin von Saba, and Jokanaan in the American premiere of Salome.
