  1. I feel very sorry for the japanese opera fans that Jonas Kaufmann has cancelled his japan tour again. But he is not the only excellent tenor in the opera comopany of the teatro comunale di Bologna. Juan Diego Florez who will sing in "Il Puritani(清教徒)", for example, is one of the greatest tenors of all time. Technically, probably the best tenor of our time. I am looking forward to his solo concert in November.
    Have a happy summer!

  2. Thanks for the news. I already read your blog and was about to write a comment there. Hope that Jonas will recover soon.
