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 made his debut as Tony (West Side Story) at Oper Graz. In April 2018, he made an acclaimed debut as Vierter Knappe in the new production of ‚Parsifal‘ at the Opéra national de Paris. In June 2018, his debut as Steuermann (Der Fliegende Holländer) at Wagner Days Budapest 2018 followed.
