Seattle Ring Cycles

Maestro Vote burst into international prominence and received high acclaim as Music Director of three complete cycles of Wagner's Der Ring des Nibelungen with soprano Jane Eaglen at Seattle Opera in August of 2001. Hailed as "Musical Wotan of the production," Vote was recognized as "a real master of Wagnerian Style" and "a conductor who brings out the best in his players." The New York Times noted that his performance was "beautiful, conceptually unified and musically strong...Mr. Vote brought vigor and textural clarity to the score."
