      Canadian opera singer (b. Aug. 4, 1935, Windsor, Ont.—d. Jan. 6, 2001, Ulm, Ger.), was an internationally renowned baritone. After studying opera at the Royal Conservatory of Music, Toronto, he made his professional debut in a 1957 Canadian Opera Company production of Puccini's Tosca. He was the grand prize winner of the International Mozart Competition in 1963. Braun joined the Bavarian State Opera in Munich, Ger., in 1968, and a year later he debuted at Covent Garden in London in the title role of Humphrey Searle's Hamlet. His repertory included more than 100 roles, most notably the title roles of Verdi's Falstaff and Tchaikovsky's Eugene Onegin.
