Earlier this summer, Jonas Kaufmann, “The world’s greatest tenor” (The Telegraph), performed his most popular Italian repertoire live at Waldbühne, Berlin’s outdoor amphitheater. The smash-success live concert was recorded for Kaufmann’s new album, An Italian Evening. Kaufmann brought-the-house-down with a succession of hits from his extremely popular Dolce Vita album as well as exciting arias and duets (with mezzo-soprano Anita Rachvelishvili) from the Italian opera repertoire including “Volare,” “Non ti scordar di me” and “Nessun Dorma.”
