JONAS KAUFMANN: AN EVENING WITH PUCCINI
With rare archive footage and an exclusive interview with Jonas to select cinemas across the United States. On June 14, 2015, German tenor Jonas Kaufmann walked onto the stage of La Scala Milan, the home of Italian opera, for one of the most highly anticipated performances of the year. The concert made national news in Italy and, following five encores and 40 minutes of applause, audiences were still left wanting more. This legendary performance, led by conductor Jochen Rieder and featuring the Filarmonica della Scala, is now the focus of a new concert documentary event directed by Brian Large and produced by Arts Alliance. Shot on location in Italy, cinema audiences will experience this unforgettable event and be treated to a revealing introduction to Puccini - the man, the musician, the celebrity - narrated by Jonas and featuring rare archive footage. Puccini’s operas include some of the most well-known melodies in classical music, especially the iconic ‘Nessun dorma’, and his popularity amongst opera fans and novices alike is a testament to his enduring appeal.
