When the days are short and lights shine and sparkle all around, a very special kind of music drifts through the air wherever you go. Whether you play or sing them yourself, hear them on the airwaves or experience them at a live concert, Christmas carols warm the heart and bring warmth and light into the long, cold winter nights. And tradition has it that even the greatest opera and concert performers lend their voices to this wonderful, international genre.

 

Interpreting timeless Christmas carols such as “Es ist ein Ros entsprungen”, “Maria durch ein Dornwald ging”, “Adeste Fideles”, “White Christmas” or “Cantique de Noël” in the concert hall, star tenor Jonas Kaufmann lets the genre shine in all its moods and colours – from plain intimacy to festive splendour.

  • Christmas programme from traditional church songs to American classics

New date for the concerts originally scheduled for 10 December 2020 and 14 December 2021
