Experience Jonas Kaufmann, opera world’s top star, in this impressive opera collection from his time at the Zurich Opera House still before his great international breakthrough. He feels closely connected to the opera house, boosted his career there and has been a longstanding fixed part of the ensemble for years.

The star-tenor has performed beside of Cecilia Bartoli and László Polgár in Paisiello’s NINA under the baton of Adam Fischer and further on in Monteverdi’s IL RITORNO D’ULISSE IN PATRIA featuring Vesselina Kasarova. In 2004 he has given the convincing suffering prisoner Florestan in Beethoven’s only opera FIDELIO and was brilliantly arrayed alongside Camilla Nylund as wonderful Leonore. Both operas under the direction of the great Nikolaus Harnoncourt.
Meanwhile, Jonas Kaufmann has become an indispensable fixture on the world's opera stages.
