Ekkehard wlaschiha

Ekkehard Wlaschiha (born May 28, 1938) is a German operatic baritone who specializes in Wagnerian villains of the "howling-and-spitting" type, such as Alberich, Klingsor, Friedrich von Telramund, Don Pizarro, and Kaspar. Recordings are available of all these roles.

He was born in Pirna, Germany and studied music at the Musikhochschule in Weimar.

He can be seen on video as Alberich (PBS broadcast of The Ring Cycle from the Met, to the largest visual-and-audio audience of the Ring in history), and as Telramund (conducted by Peter Schneider, with sets and costumes by filmmaker Werner Herzog).
