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 be described better. In May 2017, he made his debut as Tony (West Side Story) at Oper Graz. In 2018, he made his successful debuts as Vierter Knappe (Parsifal) at the Opéra national de Paris under the baton of Philippe Jordan and as Steuermann (Der Fliegende Holländer) at the Wagner Days Budapest 2018. In 2018-19, Franz Gürtelschmied will sing amongst others Graf Gustav von Pottenstein in Lehàr's operetta 'Das Land des Lächelns' at the Müpa Budapest.
