It was with Verdi that Jonas Kaufmann made his international breakthrough in 2006, when he sang Alfredo Germont in La traviata at the Met. The Verdi bicentenary in 2013 is inevitably dominated by performances of works by the great Italian opera composer, with Kaufmann featuring in three productions of Don Carlo in (London, Milan and Salzburg), two role débuts in Il trovatore and La forza del destino and his first album devoted to Verdi. It features thirteen highlights, of which eleven are firsts for Kaufmann: on stage he had so far sung only the tenor favourite “La donna è mobile” from Rigoletto and the duet with the Marquis de Posa from Don Carlo.
