He studied horn, piano, and conducting at the Hanns Eisler High School for Music in Berlin, and in 1982 played first horn with the Berlin Staatskapelle. He led both his hand-picked Berlin Chamber Choir and the New Berlin Chamber Orchestra, and from 1993, he was the principal conductor of the Brandenburg Youth Orchestra. He conducted at many opera houses through the 1990s and 2000s, including the Vienna Volksoper, the Vienna State Opera, the Cincinnati Opera, the Metropolitan Opera in New York, and Opera Australia in Sydney. In 2004 he was named principal conductor of the Gran Teatre del Liceu in Barcelona, a post he held before becoming the general music director of the Frankfurt Opera in 2008. His repertoire is concentrated on Wagner, including the early operas, Die Feen, Das Liebesverbot, and Rienzi, though he has also conducted Mozart's Die Zauberflöte, Beethoven's Fidelio, Johann Strauss' Die Fledermaus, Humperdinck's Königskinder, Richard Strauss' Arabella, and Korngold's Die tote Stadt. Most of Weigle's recordings appear on the Oehms Classics label.
