In July 2023, Jonas Kaufmann returns to the Waldbühne with a new programme: accompanied by the Deutsche Staatsphilharmonie conducted by Jochen Rieder, he presents Italian arias and duets by Puccini, Leoncavallo and Giordano as well as operetta arias and duets by Franz Lehár and Johann Strauss with the internationally celebrated soprano Rachel Willis-Sørensen. Of course, titles from "La Bohème", "Wiener Blut" and "Das Land des Lächelns" and tenor hits such as "Freunde, das Leben ist lebenswert" and "Dein ist mein ganzes Herz" are not to be missed!
Opera News magazine wrote of the classical superstar: "His intensity and elegance, the suppleness of his voice and body language, combined with his musicality and radiant looks, make Jonas Kaufmann the epitome of the opera star in the 21st century."
