Georg Nigl (Baritone)

Born in Vienna, Austria. He was the soloist with the Vienna Boys' Choir, than he was a student of Hilde Zadek.

He has sung Mozartian opera roles in France, Germany, Switzerland, Italy and Austria.
Among his most important roles are Papageno, Don Alfonso (with Thomas Hengelbrock 1999 and 2000 at the Summer Festival in Baden-Baden) and Don Giovanni (in the production of Tobias Moretti in 2002).

He appeared at Teatro alla Scala, Staatsoper Unter den Linden Berlin, Theatre de la Monnaie Brussels, Festival Aix-en-Provence, Salzburg Festival and the Vienna Festwochen.

On the opera stage he has worked with such distinguished directors as Andrea Breth, Frank Castorf, Jurgen Flimm and Peter Mussbach; and at both opera and concert venues he has performed with renowned conductors including Daniel Barenboim, Daniele Gatti, Michael Boder, Rene Jacobs, Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Jordi Savall, Thomas Hengelbrock and Giovanni Antonini.

In 1994 George Nigl began working with Nikolaus Harnoncourt with performances at the Wiener Festwochen (Haydn's L'anima del filosofo in 1994, Schubert's Alfonso and Estrella in 1997) and the Styriarte Graz (Offenbach's La Grande Duchesse de Gerolstein in 2003). He subsequently received invitations to work with other period-instruments ensembles, among others from Christophe Coin, Thomas Hengelbrock (Mozart's Cosi fan tutte in 1999, Der Winterkonig (Schubert’s Winterreise and Peter Maxwell Davies’ Eight Songs for a Mad King) in 2004), Jordi Savall as well as Giovanni Antonini and Luca Pianca with Il Giardino Armonico (Monteverdi's L'Orfeo in 1999, Haydn's Agrippina in 2000).

Georg Nigl has become one of the most sought-after singers in the performance of contemporary music. This is documented by numerous world and local premieres such as Greek by Mark-Anthony Turnage (Jeunesse Festival 1995), Gloria vom Jaxtberg by HK Gruber (Wien modern 1996), Luci miei traditrici by Salvatore Sciarrino (Wiener Festwochen and Schwetzinger Festspiele 1998), Nacht und Die Schone Wunde by Georg Friedrich Haas (Bregenzer Festspiele 1998 and 2003), Un re in ascolto by Luciano Berio's (Grand Theatre de Geneve 2002), Massacre by Wolfgang Mitterer (Wiener Festwochen 2003), Landschaften mit entfernten Verwandten by Heiner Goebbels (Grand Theatre de Geneve, Berliner Festwochen, Holland Festival 2003), Lost highway by Olga Neuwirth (steirischer herbst 2003, Stadttheater Basel 2004). Other of new opera parts are the title roles in Pascal Dusapin's Faustus the last Night (A Story of Faustus) (debuts at the Staatsoper Unter den Linden Berlin, and at the Opera House Lyon (director: Peter Mussbach), 2005-2006).
