Editors’ Notes One summer night in 2018, Jonas Kaufmann treated thousands at Berlin’s open-air Waldbühne to an evening of Italian passion that even the unexpectedly stormy weather failed to dampen. His wide-ranging program, based largely on his 2016 album, Dolce Vita, mixes the great arias of Italian opera, from Mascagni’s Cavalleria rusticana to Puccini’s Turandot (“Nessun dorma” brings the evening to a rousing close), with Neopolitan songs and Italian hits. Kaufmann, in fine form, clearly wows the audiences with his considerable charm and creates ample musical chemistry with mezzo Anita Rachvelishvili, mesmerizing in Lucio Dalla's “Caruso.” A thoroughly uplifting concert captured beautifully.
