Richard Franz was an Austrian actor. In his early years he was considered highly promising; he gave his Dresden debut in 1889 (Ernst Roeder, Dresdner Hoftheater der Gegenwart: Neue Folge [Dresden and Leipzig, 1896], pp. 142-61). In 1914, the "former actor of heroic roles in Dresden, now in Mainz" became director of the court theater in Braunschweig (Die Musik 13, part 2 [Berlin, 1914], p. 366).
