Franz Gürtelschmied

„Without a doubt the young tenor Franz Gürtelschmied was the highlight of evening […]: He gave a very strong and emphatic interpretation of the wavering Alkibiades with a steely core in his tenor voice, together with ideal articulation, concentrated projected thrust and remarkable lasting power.“


Franz Gürtelschmied‘s role of Alkibiades in Krenek‘s ‚Pallas Athene weint‘ at the Neue Oper Wien can hardly described better. In May 2017, he will make his debut as Tony (West Side Story) at the Oper Graz and will be Steuermann (Der Fliegende Holländer) under the baton of Adam Fischer. The young tenor is exceptionally talented and on his way to a world career.
