Life
Gura was born in Nové Sedlo, Louny District, Bohemia (now in the Czech Republic).

He was at first educated for the career of a painter at Vienna and Munich; but later, developing a fine baritone voice, he took up singing and studied it at the Munich Conservatorium. In 1865, he made his debut at the Munich opera, and in the following years he gained the highest reputation in Germany, being engaged principally at Leipzig till 1876 and then at Hamburg till 1883.

He sang in 1876 in Wagner’s Ring at Bayreuth, and was famous for his Wagnerian roles; his Hans Sachs in Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg, as performed in London in 1882, was magnificent. He created the role of Gűnther in Wagner’s Götterdämmerung on 17 August 1876.

In later years, he showed the perfection of art in his singing of German Lieder. He died in Aufkirchen, Bavaria.
