Conducted by Antonio Pappano and directed by Christof Loy, Kaufmann and Netrebko are joined by Ludovic Tézier, Ferruccio Furlanetto and Alessandro Corbelli (amongst others).

"Nights at the opera like this come along once in a blue moon. [...] A notoriously slow starter, Kaufmann hit the ground running here, leaping through the window with swagger, launching into a full flow of bronzed tone."
Mark Pullinger, Bachtrack, 22.03.2019
"The central draw is the starry, comet-rare pairing of the soprano Anna Netrebko, 47, and the tenor Jonas Kaufmann, 49, the major singers of their generation. [...] And it feels like the meeting of two veterans at the top of their game, their chemistry comfortable and their combined effect galvanizing."
Zachary Woolfe, The New York Times, 22.03.2019
For his Album "L'Opéra", which came out in September 2017, Jonas recorded a variety of different arias and scenes from French operas. This repertoire now takes him on a tour through Germany starting on February 7th in the Philharmonie in Berlin. He will be joined by mezzo-sopranos Kate Aldrich (Berlin, Frankfurt) and Anita Rachvelisvhili (Munich, Hanover) as well as the Prague Philharmonia under the baton of Jochen Rieder.
