Hot ticket: Munich has Petrenko and Kaufmann in final Covid concertmain
From Bavarian State Opera:
To conclude the Monday Concert series on 29 June, General Music Director Kirill Petrenko will conduct the Orchestra Academy and the Bayerisches Staatsorchester with music by Arnold Schönberg, Igor Stravinsky, Gustav Mahler and Richard Strauss. Tenor Jonas Kaufman sings Mahler’s Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen.
Starting next Monday, 15 June 2020, the Monday Concerts, which have so far been streamed by almost 400,000 viewers from all over the world, will be open to the public for the first time: for each concert, 50 tickets will be available in the balcony and first tier of the Nationaltheater. The maximum number per customer is one ticket.
Ich hab’ ein glühend Messer,
Ein Messer in meiner Brust,
O weh! Das schneid’t so tief
In jede Freud’ und jede Lust.
Because it’s Kaufmann.
Mr.Kaufmann s current hoarse voice and a wild craving for the audience ( the “I miss YOU” social media campaign) make him extremely hot at the moment. Hotter than ever.
