Heinrich Vogl debuted as Max in Von Weber's "Freischutz" in 1865. Wagner turned him down for the part of Walther in "Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg", but he was the first Loge (in "Das Rheingold", Munich, 1869) and the first Siegmund (in "Die Walküre", Munich, 1870). After Ludwig and Malvina Schnorr he and his wife Therese became the new Tristan and Isolde in 1869.

When Lilli Lehmann saw him as Loge in 1876 in Bayreuth she said that he was born for the part. He performed Canio only four days before his early death in 1900.
