  • Kaufmann is both a good singer (better than all the average today's tenors) and a very likeable guy. A good actor on stage, intelligent and passionate, we are lucky to have him.
  • BRAVO, Jonas !
  • Потрясающе!
  • he should sing more Heldentenor roles like Siegmund
  • I heard Jonas Kaufmann for the very first time this tuesday evening, where he sang in Copenhagen at a Memorial Concert for our late Queen Ingrid. What a treat - he did italian, french and german opera arias and got standing ovations for several minutes. Which gave us four extra songs of the more popular type. I especially liked "Lamento d'Federico".
  • Live via Arte HD on December 7th, 2009 he played Don Josë in Carmen at Alla Scala, Milano - bravissimo!
  • bravissisimo!
  • Bravo!
