Biography

JONAS KAUFMANN – BIOGRAPHY
“Kaufmann’s humanity lies essentially in his singing, but in deportment he plays the part with a naturalness, an absence of stagey ‘attitude’, that is rare indeed . . .

Born in Munich, tenor Jonas Kaufmann is now internationally recognized as one of the most important artists of our day. He has made sensational debuts in recent seasons in many of the world’s leading opera houses, appearing at the Royal Opera, Covent Garden, in La rondine opposite Angela Gheorghiu and in the 2007 new production of Carmen under Antonio Pappano. He has also appeared as Alfredo in La Traviata at the Metropolitan Opera, the Lyric Opera of Chicago, La Scala, Milan, and the Opéra Bastille in Paris. Other important milestones in his career were Tamino in Die Zauberflöte at the Bavarian State Opera in Munich, Vienna State Opera and Metropolitan Opera; as Belmonte in Die Entführung aus dem Serail at the Salzburg Festival; and as Faust in La Damnation de Faust at the Théâtre de la Monnaie in Brussels.
Jonas Kaufmann completed his musical studies in his native Munich, participated in masterclasses with James King, Hans Hotter and Josef Metternich and subsequently perfected his vocal technique with Michael Rhodes. He began his professional career at the Staatstheater Saarbrücken in 1994 and was soon invited to make debuts in important German theatres such as the Stuttgart Opera and Hamburg State Opera. International debuts at the Lyric Opera of Chicago, Paris Opera and the Teatro alla Scala followed. He made his Salzburg Festival debut in 1999 in a new production of Busoni’s Dr. Faust and returned there in 2003 as Belmonte, as well as for concerts of Beethoven’s Symphony no. 9 with the Berliner Philharmoniker.
Jonas Kaufmann has been closely associated with the Zurich Opera since 2001; he has appeared there in several new productions, including Idomeneo, La clemenza di Tito, Schubert’s Fierrabras, Humperdinck’s Königskinder, Bizet’s Carmen and Monteverdi’s L’incoronazione di Poppea. Other roles in Zurich have included the Duke in Rigoletto, the title role in Gounod’s Faust, Florestan in Fidelio, and the leading tenor parts in Die Zauberflöte, Die Entführung aus dem Serail and Così fan tutte.

In 2006 Kaufmann also presented his first Walther von Stolzing in a concert performance of Die Meistersinger at the Edinburgh Festival conducted by David Robertson.

In January 2009 he sang the Italian Tenor in the production of Der Rosenkavalier with Renée Fleming under Christian Thielemann in Baden-Baden. He returned to the Zurich Opera in a new production of Tosca staged by Robert Carsen. He appeared at the Vienna State Opera in Manon and Tosca and in July 2009 he added to his wide repertory the title role of Lohengrin in a new production by Richard Jones at the Bavarian State Opera, conducted by Kent Nagano. He also appeared there in La Traviata opposite Angela Gheorghiu. That season also included solo operatic concerts in Mannheim, Berlin, Athens and Paris. Kaufmann made his debut in Moscow in December 2008 in a concert opposite Dmitri Hvorostovsky. He was partnered by renowned pianist Helmut Deutsch in several Lieder recitals in Paris, Zurich, Vienna, Copenhagen, Munich and at the Salzburg Festival.

Among these engagements were performances with the Berliner Philharmoniker under both Sir Simon Rattle and Nikolaus Harnoncourt, The Cleveland Orchestra under Franz Welser-Möst and the Wiener Philharmoniker under Helmuth Rilling. In the summer of 2007 he sang Beethoven’s Symphony no. 9 in Lucerne under Claudio Abbado and subsequently made his Carnegie Hall debut in October 2007 in the same work. In 2008 he also performed with The Cleveland Orchestra in Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde with Welser-Möst and in Verdi’s Requiem in Zurich under Daniele Gatti.
In the autumn of 2009 Jonas Kaufmann returned to the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, in Don Carlos under Semyon Bychkov. He was asked to open the 2009/10 season at the Teatro alla Scala with a new production of Carmen under Daniel Barenboim and sang the Verdi Requiem with La Scala in Milan, Paris and Moscow.
