Unfortunately, the concert with Jonas Kaufmann planned for 18 August 2022 at Berlin's Waldbühne cannot take place for production reasons and must therefore be postponed.
The organiser has managed to arrange an alternative date: The concert will now take place on Saturday, 8 July 2023 (starting already at 7 pm). Jonas Kaufmann and Rachel Willis-Sørensen will be accompanied by the Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin conducted by Jochen Rieder.
Tickets already purchased remain valid or can be returned to the advance booking office where they were purchased.
Jonas Kaufmann makes a return to another one of his standout roles, headlining a new production of Wagner’s Lohengrin with Opera Australia at the State Theatre, Arts Centre Melbourne, under the direction of Olivier Py. Having performed the role already in Munich (2009), at the Bayreuth Festival (2010), at La Scala in Milan (2012) and at the Paris Opéra (2017), this is his fifth production of Wagner's opera. He is joined by Emily Magee as Elsa, Elena Gabouri as Ortrud, Simon Meadows as Telramund, Daniel Sumegi as Heinrich and Warwick Fyfe as Herald, conducted by Opera Australia’s Head of Music Tahu Matheson. Performances are held on 14th, 17th, 21st, and 24th May. Tickets and more information can be found here.
