    I'm keeping my fingers crossed and hoping this program will eventually be released in DVD/blu-ray formats. I'm fairly certain the ROH Otello will be, and I expect there would be a good market for a video of the "Tenor for the Ages" program.

    One hopes. I lament that a couple of worthwhile productions featuring Kaufmann--the Met Werther from 2014, the Munich Andrea Chénier from earlier this year--aren't available on DVD (at least, not the kind we can recommend here).

    The latest version of der Jonas' authorized biography by Thomas Voigt is now available in English translation at Amazon.uk.



    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Jonas-Kaufm.../dp/1474604277

    I checked Amazon.com, but it appears this book isn't available yet on this side of the pond. I suspect I'll go ahead and order from the UK, especially since that's how I obtained the German language original, "Meinen die wirklich mich," several years ago.

    Looks very interesting. I will have to read it. Maybe I can get my library to order a copy. I only wish they could make a nicer cover with a more natural cover photo instead of making him look like a fashion model with a hair doo (hairdo? Spelling?). Or how about a picture from one of his operas? Or is that what they did?

    No, this looks like the publicity shot from his Verdi album. I would have preferred to see a photo from one of his opera performances, too.

    Not sure if this has been posted in this thread yet, but here is a (very strange) Fidelio production with a very young Jonas Kaufmann playing Jacquino:

    For Jonas, Fidelio, or both?

    Don't forget the full NINA video with Cecilia Bartoli and Jonas Kaufmann is also on You Tube and there Jonas is also young, but not as young as in the above video.

    Fidelio with a young Kaufmann. I loved his voice then, he sounded like a proper tenor. I know he changed his technique after taking advice but I don't care for his voice now. I had that Nina and sold it.

    Couldn't deal with Cecilia gnawing at a floral arrangement?

    From this year's José Carreras Gala that raised funds for leukemia research, two of my fave tenors sing the Cantique de Noël:

    I absolutely adored Kaufmann as Don Carlos in this year Opera Bastille production. He made all others look - and sound - rather pale:

    An Associated Press story on JK written in conjunction with his recent Lied concert in Santa Monica (California) mentions that he'll be returning to the Met next season in La Fanciulla del West. Hope everything goes well this time. In general, I get the impression that he's been doing a little fence-mending of late, catching up on some concert appearances -- as in Santa Monica and coming up at the Barbican -- that had been scheduled in previous years and fell victim to cancellations. A New York Times review of his Lied concert on 20 January at Carnegie Hall indicated that audiences seem willing to "forgive and forget," and to judge by the reported ovations there and in Santa Monica, that would indeed seem to be the case. I hope he remains healthy and is able to continue fulfilling his commitments.
