AN EVENING OF LYRICAL APOTHEOSIS

Jonas Kaufmann is synonymous with the grand occasion. A leading star on the world opera scene, the great tenor has never wanted to limit himself to any one repertoire, as he has shown in his various participations in this festival. In 2015, now a world celebrity, he conquered Milan's La Scala with one of the most eagerly-awaited performances of his career: a concert of arias by Giacomo Puccini. The performance was immortalised in An Evening with Puccini directed by Brian Large and produced by Arts Alliance. This year, Jonas Kaufmann returns to the Festival Castell de Peralada with a programme that will alternate orchestral pieces with some of the best arias and duos in the Puccini repertoire. For the occasion, the German tenor will feature the participation of Italian soprano Maria Agresta and the trusted baton of conductor Jochen Rieder at the helm of the Orquestra Simfònica del Vallès.
He is the most sought-after tenor in the world. She is one of the leading international lyric sopranos thanks to her technique and prestige on stage. Together, they will pay tribute to the Italian composer in a night to remember.
