Personalities | Jonas Kaufmann | Modern Era | Opera

b. 1969, German

Kaufmann’s mesmerising presence, fine acting and beautiful sound have secured his place in the operatic firmament. He sings a large number of spinto tenor roles, such as the title role in Don Carlos, Don Jose in Carmen, and Maurizio in Adriana Lecouvreur, alongside an increasing number of Wagnerian roles. His versatility in opera sits comfortably alongside his recital performances, for which he is equally fêted.
