Notes & Reviews:

La Scena Musicale
The finest heldentenor since Jon Vickers.

This is the Lohengrin voice of dreams: both romantic and heroic, with a gentle, well-nourished warmth, capable of a perfectly graduated diminuendo to pianissimo.

Richard Jones's radical new production of Lohengrin was the talk of the 2009 Munich Festival. It was also a triumph for Jonas Kaufmann in the title role. Die Welt added that they "could not think of any cast more perfectly matched, so youthfully enthralling, in short: so wonderful ... ". With striking costumes and designs by Ultz - and directed by Maestro Kent Nagano - it represents a bold new Lohengrin for today's world.
