Notes & Reviews:

In support of Jonas Kaufmann's new album, Nessun dorma - The Puccini Album. Kaufmann will be performing the role of Des Grieux in Puccini's Manon Lescaut at The Metropolitan Opera in early 2016. Filmed in June 2014 at London's Royal Opera House. Conducted by renowned maestro Antonio Pappano.

Filmed in June 2014, London's Royal Opera House presented Jonathan Kent's new production of Manon Lescaut. Starring superstar tenor Jonas Kaufmann along with Kristine Opolaļas and Benjamin Hulett, this modern update to the 19th century classic was conducted by renowned maestro Antonio Pappano.

The Daily Telegraph
The world's greatest tenor.

London Evening Standard
Exhibiting qualities from each of the Three Tenors - Pavarotti's gleaming tone, Carreras's good looks, Domingo's dramatic presence - Jonas Kaufmann is justifiably lauded as the outstanding tenor of our day. In Jonathan Kent's new production of Puccini's Manon Lescaut he delivers a thrilling performance that satisfies both musically and theatrically.

The Independent
From the moment Kaufmann and Opolaļs embark - with infinite delicacy - on their emotional journey, it becomes clear that this is a vocal marriage made in heaven. His warmly burnished sound is balanced by the exquisitely-nuanced purity of hers, and they are supported by a performance in the pit, under Antonio Pappano, of rare refinement.

The Guardian
Antonio Pappano has few peers today as a Puccini conductor, and gives the score a tremendous sense of vivid theatricality.
