The series does not end: Jonas Kaufmann has withdrawn from his appearances in the Grand Opening concerts of Hamburg’s Elbphilharmonie on 11 and 12 January 2017. Following the advice of his doctor, Kaufmann has made the difficult decision to postpone his return to the stage, so that he can fully recover from illness. In the second half of January, Kaufmann is scheduled to sing Lohengrin at the National Opera in Paris.

In Hamburg, Pavol Breslik steps in for the cancelling singer.
