This Christmas, international opera star Jonas Kaufmann returns to the Royal Albert Hall, on 16 December
Internationally renowned German operatic tenor, Jonas Kaufmann, will be taking the stage at the iconic Royal Albert Hall, to perform and share his favourite songs of the festive season in Christmas with Jonas Kaufmann, on Thursday 16 December 2021.
The programme is rich with an array of festive songs, including renditions of songs that the young Kaufmann sang as a child with his family around the Christmas tree in his native Germany (In Dulci Jubilo, Ich steh an deiner Krippen hier). The opera star will also sing beloved carols popular around the world, such as In the Bleak Midwinter, What Child is This?, O Come, All Ye Faithful (Adeste fideles), and Hark the Herald Angels Sing.
The performance will also feature swinging hits made famous by the likes of Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, and Ella Fitzgerald, including Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, Winter Wonderland, White Christmas, and The Christmas Song.
Kaufmann is no stranger to the festive season, as he saw great success in his 2020 recording It’s Christmas!, which led to the album being extended to include seven newly recorded songs, and was recently re-released on Sony Classical.
“The world’s most sought-after operatic tenor” (Financial Times) will be accompanied by the distinguished Deutsche Staatsphilharmonie, who will be led by Kaufmann’s regular recital partner Jochen Rieder, in this highly anticipated UK performance, exclusively at the Royal Albert Hall on December 16, 2021.
This concert is a major highlight of Christmas at the Royal Albert Hall, which makes its return to full capacity for the first time in two years, with nearly 40 shows over 24 days as part of the venue’s 150th anniversary celebrations.
This exclusive Christmas event marks Kaufmann’s return to the Royal Albert Hall for the first time since his performance at the Last Night of the Proms in 2015. He had previously appeared at the prestigious venue for the Classic BRIT Awards in 2009.
Christmas With Jonas Kaufmann will take place at the Royal Albert Hall on Thursday, December 16, 2021, at 7:30 PM.
