Jonas Kaufmann tenor
Berliner Philharmoniker
Kirill Petrenko

On New Year's Eve 2022, the Berliner Philharmoniker and chief conductor Kirill Petrenko welcome a very special guest: Star tenor Jonas Kaufmann joins in for a rousing Italian and Russian programme.
Sonorous foundation, radiant high notes, intelligent shaping: all this makes Jonas Kaufmann a leading singer worldwide. The programme includes famous preludes from Italian opera, Piotr Tchaikovsky's rapturous Capriccio Italien and the most beautiful pieces from Sergei Prokofiev's ballet Romeo and Juliet with its blend of brilliance and striking expressiveness.
