Kaufmann’s got his gunmain
Live from Munich on Saturday night: Verdi’s Forza with hot tenor. Make a date of it.
On Saturday, December 28, the Bayerische Staatsoper will be presenting the season’s third transmission on STAATSOPER.TV. This time, Giuseppe Verdi’s La forza del destino will be streamed live and free from Munich. Martin Kušej’s new production will be featuring two singers in great demand: Munich born tenor Jonas Kaufmann will sing Don Alvaro in his role debut. Anja Harteros, who in 2009 and 2013 opened the Munich Opera Festival alongside Mr. Kaufmann (Lohengrin and Il trovatore), will sing Donna Leonora (role debut). The Bayerische Staatsorchester will be led by Maestro Asher Fisch.
The live audiovisual broadcast will start at 6 p.m. (CET) at www.staatsoper.de/tv. The service is free of charge to viewers.
