News about Jonas Kaufmann

There will be a DVD of Verdi's La Forza del Destino from the Bayerische Staatsoper in Munich starring Jonas Kaufmann and Anja Harteros reviewed here.

As part of his residence at the Barbican in London Feb 2017 Jonas will sing Strauss's Vier Letzte Lieder (Four Last Songs).  He's already done Wagner's Wesendonck Lieder, which I think he could have done better, so why not other soprano repertoire?

He will do his first Tales of Hoffmann in Paris and first Otello in London.

There's a lot more, but these seem sufficient.
