Georg Nigl

Die schöne Müllerin

The Austrian baritone Georg Nigl enthralled the audience of La Monnaie with his talent as a singer and actor in the two contemporary scores of Pascal Dusapin, Passion and O Mensch !, which he invested with an unforgettable meaning, technique and vocal inflection. Eclectic and adventurous, Georg Nigl is also an expert in the baroque repertoire and an informed connoisseur of Schubert’s work. His expressive version of the song cycle Die schöne Müllerin gives unexpected meaning to the symbolic journey from love to death of the traveller enamoured of the beautiful miller’s daughter... ‘It is precisely when faced with the familiar masterpieces that we can look at them afresh. It is up to us to find what they have to say to us. For me, to sing a role means to ‘translate’ it to the best of my ability.’
