Rudolf Schock (September 4, 1915 - November 13, 1986) was a German tenor. Schock had a wide repertory from operetta to Lohengrin, recording among others opera and lieder, doing television, radio and film work. Slim and handsome, he made many films. Blessed with a mezza-voice that rivaled Beniamino Gigli in sweetness, he had that Italian "tear" in his voice. His voice had a unique recognizable sound. Schock first burst on the scene after World War II in 1947.
