She has sung roles like Donna Elvira in Don Giovanni, Susanna in Le Nozze di Figaro, Violetta in La Traviata and Floria Tosca in Tosca on stages and opera houses in Scandinavia and Germany.

As a soloist with symphonic orchestras, Ms Piganiol has recently sung Górecki’s 3rd Symphony and Beethoven’s 9th Symphony with Øresunds Symfoniorkester, and Marguerite from Berlioz’s Faust with the Singapore Symphony Orchestra. She appeared as a soloist with the Iraqi Symphony Orchestra, in Baghdad in 2010.

Apart from touring in Scandinavia with her duo Nordic Sopranos, Ms Piganiol took part in producing a childrens Opera in early 2012 called Monster Opera, which toured in Denmark under the direction of Operan i Midt and was re-produced in autumn 2013 again.

Ms Piganiol was asked to incarnate the role of Mercedes in a contemporary Danish Opera by Lars Klit, Angelo in the spring of 2012 ( world premiere).

In 2012 Ms Piganiol also founded her trio: TrioSatie, with whom she arranges music by the composer Erik Satie and his contemporary fellow composer colleagues. She sang once more the soprano soloist in Händels Messiah in Christmas 2012 and, after some successful New Years concerts with Aalborg symphonic orchestra Ms Piganiol sang Violetta in Øresunds Operans production of Traviata from may to September 2013.

Ms Piganiol sang the title role in Puccinis Tosca in the production led by the Opera Festival in Aalborg, in March 2014 and in August the same year.

In 2015 she incarnated the role of Tora in a contemporary Swedish opera composed by Daniel Hjort, produced by Nordic Opera.

2016 showed to be yet another 'world premiere' year for Ms Piganiol and Nordic Opera, with the role of Gertrude in Mr. Gudmundssons opera "Hamlet in absentia". In 2017 it was on tour in Denmark and got nominated by the Reumert in DK the same year.
Trio Satie  launched their first CD "L'Heure Satie" in April 2018 ( Danacord) and Ms Piganiol takes great pleasure in giving concerts with the trio, telling the public funny anecdotes about the French composers from Erik Saties entourage and time.
