The Greek National Opera presents a superb world-class artistic event. The “king of tenors”, the opera super star, the fascinating performer with the unique voice and unparalleled stage presence comes –at the absolute peak of his career– for a unique recital at the Odeon of Herodes Atticus. On Sunday 12 September 2021, the Greek audience will welcome the celebrated and much sought-after German tenor Jonas Kaufmann. Any superlatives to describe him and all raving reviews about him are constantly proven right when he takes the stage. The recital is sponsored by Rolex.
He is on the front lines of opera news for over twenty years. Every one of his appearances is a huge event, not only within the closed opera circle, but also for the wider music audience; every debut he makes mobilizes thousands of friends who travel to see him, every new performance he gives becomes an object of study, every one of his albums becomes a best seller, and the tickets to the performances he stars in are sold out in just a few hours. Jonas Kaufmann is a phenomenal singer, who has proven over the course of time his unique value and timelessness.
His career started taking off in the late ‘90s and already in 2006, with his debut as Alfredo in La traviata at the Metropolitan Opera in New York, he was named by both audiences and critics “the new king of tenors”, and has been hailed as the absolute opera star.
Thanks to his unique vocal and musical qualities and his very careful choices, Kaufmann has mastered a very wide repertoire and has given riveting performances of the most important roles of the French, Italian, and German operatic repertoires. At the same time, he has lent a new dimension to taxing operatic roles, making his interpretations a benchmark for the modern-day art of opera.
His numerous awards, the successful productions he has starred in, his unique recitals across the world, his recordings and DVDs have made his art accessible even to the most remote audiences. But the experience of viewing and listening to this great artist live remains unsurpassable.
