1864 - 1937

The singer and actor Hermann Bachmann became famous as an opera singer primarily.

Before he became an artist he began his professional career as a commercial employee. But singing was always something he was interested in and therefore he took singing lessons in Berlin.
Finally he was able to make his stage debut at the Stadttheater in Halle an der Saale in 1890. He switched to the Stadttheater Nuremberg and three years later he went to the Hofoper in Berlin where he remained the next 20 years.

Besides his singing appearances Hermann Bachmann also directed several productions.

He also took part in few movies, among them "Die Geächteten" (19) with Alfred Abel and Sybill Morel, Carl Boese's "Nocturno der Liebe" (19) with Rita Clermont und Conrad Veidt, impersonating the role of the manager Turenius in "Die entfesselte Menschheit" (20) with Eugen Klöpfer and Carl de Vogt, "Präsident Barrada" (20) with Michael Bohnen and Wilhelm Diegelmann as well as "Jenseits des Stromes" (22) with Walter Janssen, Ada Svedin and Ilka Grüning.
Most of his movies were directed by Joseph Delmont.

After his active career he worked as a singing teacher.
