Metropolitan Opera, NY

Madama Butterfly. "A couple of nights later, when Franz Vote made his conducting debut, the MET orchestra and Gorchakova came to life in a way unseen at her debut under the baton of Gatti. The orchestral lines, as well as the sounds of both the orchestra and Cio-Cio-San, were crips and clean. The emotional intensity of Mr. Vote's conducting, combined with Gorchakova's acting, seemed just right and thus a pleasure." - Review from Sevdnaya, Moscow (translation by the author, Ibrahim Quraishi)

Opera, Guangzhou, China

"Although the Pearl River Film Symphony Orchestra had never before performed European operatic music, they rehearsed enthusiastically under Maestro Vote's superb artistic direction. Franz Vote is the most excellent conductor among those visiting domestic and international conductors (the orchestra) has ever worked with." - Review from ZhongHe Huang, Pearl River Film Company

Seattle "Ring" Cycles

"Again and again during the four evenings in the packed theater the comment was heard: 'Musically, this is the best 'Ring" I've ever seen.' And, clearly, it is.. Musical 'Wotan' of the production, however, is conductor Franz Vote, as sovereign presence throughout this 17 hours of music... Vote is an old-school Wagnerian, who takes his time with the "Ring" and knows exactly how to supply the help the singers need from the pit. From all reports this is a "Ring" far superior to the one at stage in Bayreuth this summer. Hats off and an extra round of mead to Jenkins et al!" - Review from Wes Blomster, OPERA NOW (Musical America Online)
