Spanish tenor from the Canary islands (known professionally as Alfredo Kraus), particularly remembered for the artistry he brought to opera's bel canto roles. He was also considered an outstanding interpreter of the title role in Massenet's opera Werther, and especially of its famous aria, "Pourquoi me réveiller?"
Kraus was also noted for extremely refined musicianship, accompanied by a seemingly effortless high register. As a result, many opera connoisseurs consider him to be one of the best tenors of the end of the 20th century.
In 1991, Kraus was awarded the Prince of Asturias Award. He died on 10 September 1999 in Madrid at the age of 71 after a long illness.
