German tenor Jonas Kaufmann is known for his versatility, and combining power with finesse, as demonstrated in roles like Don José in Carmen, Siegmund in Die Walküre, and the title roles in Otello, Andrea Chénier, and Don Carlos. In this rare US recital—his first UC Berkeley appearance since his Bay Area debut 10 years ago—Kaufmann returns with a program showcasing his love of lieder, along with a rewarding mix of French, German, and Italian song.
