Hans Hotter was a German operatic bass-baritone, admired internationally after World War II for the power, beauty, and intelligence of his singing, especially in Wagner operas.

He was extremely tall and his appearance was striking and his voice and diction were equally recognisable.

He was a regular Wotan at Bayreuth and was well recorded in the role which he frequently played alongside Birgit Nilsson.
