Jonas Kaufmann sings Ella FitzgeraldNews
It looks like the tenor’s career is taking a peculiar trajectory, one unvisited even by anything-goes Placido Domingo.
This is just in from London’s Royal Albert Hall:
This December, audiences will get a rare opportunity to see international opera star Jonas Kaufmann performing a repertoire of Christmas classics as part of the London landmark’s 2021 festive season.
Accompanied by the German State Philharmonic and conductor Jochen Rieder, Jonas will sing renditions of traditional favourites from his native Germany right through to the swinging American Christmas of Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald. Expect songs such as Oh Come All Ye Faithful, Oh Holy Night and White Christmas to name but a few.
