Rest assured, Jonas Kaufmann sang tonight

We hear from friends in the Covent Garden audience that he sang in Forza, opposite Netrebko.

Let us know if you were there.

  • A friend of ours was there and said she didn’t like the production in itself not much, but it was well done and she found especially Ms Netrebko rather great.

  • Very much so. At the curtain, a lady in a kimono hurled a bunch of red roses at him; it fell into the net covering the orchestra pit but he recovered it without missing a beat.

  • Frankly, no-one seriously doubted this would happen – although it will bleaken the day of the Windgassen Fan Club here, who believe that the only good singing happened in the era of wax cylinders.

    • Aaaaaagh! Used to work for a guy who loved to brag to me about scoring Glyndebourne tickets — because he knew that I loved opera and that I also knew he’d snooze thru it.

    • No dress rehearsal was ‘missed’. JK shares the role with Eyvazov in this production, and considering Kauffman was singing the opening night, it made sense fot Eyvazov to sing the DR.
