Così fan tutte - W. A. Mozart
Almost entirely in December 1789, the year of the revolution, the score of this Mozart opera, which is hard to beat in its complexity and amour, was written in the shortest possible time - this time again in collaboration with the famous librettist Lorenzo da Ponte, with whom Mozart had just before successfully brought "Le nozze di Figaro" to the stage. Probably in the tradition of the opera buffa, the opera “Così fan tutte - ossia la scuola degli amanti” was commissioned by Emperor Joseph II. At the center of the amusingly frivolous event is the experienced cynic Don Alfonso, who knows the weaknesses of mankind and who, like a puppeteer, allows the four main characters to repeatedly come together in new pair constellations. The plot, which is kept quite simple and contains no superfluous episodes, is symmetrically structured and corresponds to its character according to the Commedia dell’arte. The duets of the individual couples are bewitching and sensually musical, reflecting the vulnerability and impermanence of the human being. After the work was critically and negatively judged due to the moralizing basic attitude of the 19th century, and repeated revisions were made to the libretto, the opera is now one of the absolute favorites of the public. The American feature film Closer from 2004 with Julia Roberts and Jude Law in the leading roles is based on "Così fan tutte" both in its score and soundtrack.

Aida - G. Verdi
Giuseppe Verdi (1813-1901) wrote his “Aida” at a politically highly explosive time: Germany and France were on the brink of war (Franco-Prussian War 1870/71), which is why the premiere could not take place until a year later after the scheduled date: Because both the stage sets and the costumes were stuck in the Prussian occupied Paris. The opera had been commissioned by the Egyptian Viceroy Ismail Pasha. However, not, as often wrongly assumed, for the inauguration of the Suez Canal, but for the opening of the new opera house in Cairo in 1871. Aida shows the versatility of this exceptional Italian composer in its entirety: large-scale mass scenes and choruses are juxtaposed with equally intimate, chamber-play-like scenes that reveal a soul drama that is ingenious in every detail. In this respect, the work can certainly be interpreted as a turning point in Verdi’s oeuvre, as it not only focuses on the vocal parts, but also assigns a new and leading role to the orchestra. Verdi received the 150,000 gold francs demanded for his composition, probably the highest honorarium granted to a composer to date. In addition, he demanded his own trumpets for the famous Triumphal March, the so-called Aida trumpets, which had to be commissioned as a special production. Today "Aida" is one of the most successful of the great operas of the 19th century.

Jonas Kaufmann
Tenor Jonas Kaufmann was born on July 10, 1969 in Munich. He learned to play the piano at the age of 8, encouraged by his father and grandfather who passed on to him their passion for classical music, Wagner and singing. Jonas Kaufmann also frequently attended the Munich Opera from an early age and joined his school choir. He then embarked on studies of mathematics, which he abandoned to join, in 1989, the Academy of Music and Theater in Munich. Jonas Kaufmann gets his first important role at the Regensburg Opera where he is Caramello in A Night in Venice by Johann Strauss. Jonas Kaufmann then met Helmut Deutsch who guided him in his vocal development and still accompanies him today on the piano in his recitals. It was during the 2000s that his international career took off with his appearances in particular at the Chicago Opera, the Salzburg Festival, the La Monnaie Theater, Covent Garden, the Zurich Opera, the Staatsoper in Vienna, Munich, La Scala, New York Metropolitan Opera and the Bayreuth Festival. Comfortable in all repertoires, he then became one of the most popular tenors on the international scene.
