“The strong cast was lead by tenor Pascal Mondieig, a superb actor presently involved with l’Opéra de Montréal’s Atelier Lyrique. His phenomenally subtle and comic Gabriel Von Eisentein anchored the whole production…” This is how Pascal Mondieig’s performance of Die Fledermaus (Johann Strauss) was underlined in La Scena Musicale of Montréal.
He excels not only in modern works (Garleus in De materie, Andriessen) but also in classical and early music (Valetto in Incoronazione di Poppea, Monteverdi).
With strong dramatic abilities, Pascal Mondieig appeared on stage in roles such as Little Bat in Suzanna (Floyd), Basilio in Le nozze di Figaro (Mozart), third Jew in Salome (Richard Strauss) and the dance master in Manon Lescaut (Puccini).
He sang Bastien in Bastien und Bastienne (Mozart) in a concert version with the Montréal Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Charles Dutoit and Torquemada from Ravel’s L’heure Espagnole for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.
He also regularly works with the Studio de Musique Ancienne de Montréal in sacred and early music works: Opéra de Noël (Charpentier). He is often involved in Carmina Burana (Orff) as the Swan. Recently, he played the role of Winchwood, one of the major characters in the American T.V production of The Warden directed by Stephen Gyllenhaal.
Graduated from the Conservatoire de Paris, Pascal Mondieig studied at l’Université de Montréal and has completed a two year intership at l’Atelier Lyrique de l’Opéra de Montréal where he presently resides.
