There had been rumours around for a while that all was not well chez Kaufmann. Now he’s confirmed the split on his site:


Margarete Joswig and Jonas Kaufmann would like to communicate hereby that they have separated.

Very sad. Many thought them the perfect pair.


  • Duane says:

    That is beyond sad!! I wish only the best for Herr Kaufmann!!

  • This won’t come as any surprise to those in the know in the business…

  • B.S. says:

    I’ve checked Kaufmann’s Official site but I don’t see a comment about his marital separation?

    If this is true, I’m saddened by it.

    • Rosemary Morrissey says:

      Why should he comment? Jonas Kaufmann is, in my opinion, the consummate
      operatic performer. He “belongs” to the public in his public personae. The rest of the time, he belongs to himself — if he has any time!
