Hungarian-born Gergely Németi joined Oper Stuttgart last season making an acclaimed debut as Andres in Andrea Moses’ new production of Wozzeck. His work in Stuttgart continues this season with new productions of both Don Giovanni and Iphigénie en Aulide, and revivals of Nabucco and Die Zauberflöte.
Possessing a voice equally at home in Wagnerian repertoire, at Wiener Staatsoper Németi also performed as the Steuermann (Der Fliegender Holländer), Walther von der Vogelweide (Tannhäuser) and Froh in the new production of Das Rheingold, conducted by Music Director Franz Welser-Möst.
“The Hungarian tenor Gergely Németi displayed an attractive timbre, a smooth and cultivated line, with a clear top that already points towards a more heroic future, and excellent French.” (Udo Klebes, Der Neue Merker, November 2012)
"Gergely Németi, who will move from the Wiener Staatsoper to the Stuttgart ensemble next season, gave a very promising taste of what was to come with a lyrical, melodious and colourful striking tenor (voice) as well as a likeable performance as Andres" (Der Neue Merker, May 2012 )
"An Andres assured in the high register and outlined with finesse." (GB opera, May 2012)
"...and the steadfast light agility of Gergely Németi's Kudrjás...complete the impressive vocal level of the evening." (Katja Kabanova, Wiener Staatsoper - Der Standard, November 2011)
"His strikingly beautiful, nuanced and round timbre, as well as his excellent phrasing, strike you immediately. You could say, a real Mozart voice of refined tone and brilliance." (Martin Robert Botz, Neue Merkur)
"Gergely Nemeti, a veritable joy to hear" (Kurt Vlach, Neue Merkur)
"Gergely Nemeti sang an excellent Beppe/Arlecchino and was the best tenor of the night." (Elena Habermann, Neue Merkur)
