    Jonas Kaufmann is an outstanding singer and performer. I have seen /heard him in many operas including Manon Lescaut and Andrea Chenier He makes his characters absolutely believable. He richly deserves this award!

    Kaufmann def. I also think that "Die Frau Ohne Schatten" deserves an award. This is not an easy opera to put on and places huge demands on everyone. The ROH production was splendid and really let us appreciate the sheer wonder of this opera.

    Les interprétations du Chevalier des Grieux et de A.Chénier de Jonas sont innovantes , intelligences , inouies ...Il a étudier ces personnages et met à leur service une voix prodigieuse, brillante, nuancée et bouleversante ...

  10. I review the LIVE-AT-THE-MET-IN-HD transmissions for Patch; have covered Jonas Kaufmann since 2009 and have seen/heard all his HDs and CDs since way before. He is a remarkable phenomenon and deserves every award he gets! Hals und Beinbruch, Mr. Kaufmann.
