Notes & Reviews:
Jonas Kaufmann's sensational double role-debut took the 2016 Salzburg Easter Festival by storm. Conducted by Christian Thielemann.
As comparably short operas, Cavalleria Rusticana and Pagliacci are often billed together, but seldom is the lead tenor making his double role debut as Turiddu and Canio on the same evening. At the 2015 Salzburg Easter Festival, Jonas Kaufmann did just that - to rapturous praise. Universally hailed as a coup for Kaufmann, the plaudits were also showered on Philipp Stölzl for his innovative staging which includes live video projections while referencing the era of black-andwhite movies.
The Daily Telegraph
