Werner Alberti (Werner Krzywonos) was born in Gnesen/Gniezno, Germany in 1860.
After first working in a bank, he studied voice in Berlin and made his
concert debut there in 1887, followed by a concert tour of Germany. In
1888 he joined the German Theater in Prague, and while there, also
appeared at the Vienna Opera (1889) and later at the Imperial Operas in
St. Petersburg and Moscow. He made successful guest appearances in Genoa
(1895) and was engaged at the National Opera in Budapest (1899-1902).
Later, he lived in Berlin and sang often at the Kroll Opera and the
Theatre am Westens; at the latter, in 1899, he sang the tilte role in the
first German performance of Andrea Chenier. In later years he taught
singing in Berlin. Alberti died in Berlin in 1934.
