Just in: Jonas Kaufmann is taking a month out, and moremain
The tenor has told the German press agency in a CD-publicity interview that he has not sung at all for the past four weeks.
Kaufmann, 50, has also taken a decision to reduce the frequency of his appearances, not singing every night or even every second night, but only every third or fourth.
He says: ‘The trend has to be towards more free time because this is my last chance to enjoy a family and not just look on from afar’.
Kaufmann’s wife, Christiane Lutz, is presently directing Verdi for a Glyndebourne tour.
