New Year’s Eve Concert with Kirill Petrenko and Jonas Kaufmann

Blood feud, incest and the ultimate happiness of love: this New Year’s Eve with music by Richard Wagner was characterised by great drama. Siegmund from Die Walküre is one of Jonas Kaufmann’s signature roles, which he embodied with “technical bravura and exemplary clarity of text”. Together with Vida Miknevičiūte (Sieglinde) and Tobias Kehrer (Hunding), the Philharmoniker and chief conductor Kirill Petrenko presented the erotically charged music with “overwhelming openness – a live performance cannot unfold more magic” (Tagesspiegel).
