Was ist denn dass?

On the Kaufmann unofficial page:

23.6.2016, Paris, Théâtre des Champs-Élysées, Lied von der Erde, + sinfonische Musik (beide Stimmen, Tenor und Bariton)

Did you ever hear of such a thing?  Translation.  Jonas Kaufmann will sing both the tenor and the baritone parts in Das Lied von der Erde by Mahler.  Ach du lieber.

Of course I am only aware of a Das Lied von der Erde that's for tenor and MEZZO.

Das Lied von der Erde can also be sung by a bariton and tenor (instead of alt and tenor):

Yes, I know, and it frequently is. I never go when this happens. As a former mezzo, I don't like it when men take our parts. I never go to Fledermaus when a man sings Orlovsky, e.g. I would probably make an exception for Jonas.
