Taking Met Opera audiences by storm in May 2010 in sold-out performances of Carmen and Tosca and appearing this spring in the Met's Robert Lepage production of Die Walküre, Jonas Kaufmann is the tenor that everyone is talking about. An exceptionally versatile vocal artist, he makes his highly anticipated Bay Area debut at Cal Performances, revealing his abundant talents as a lieder interpreter. "He has everything: intelligence, musicianship, and resourceful technique," says the New York Times.
