Jonas Kaufmann sings arias from verismo operas—music-dramas from the late 19th and early 20th centuries that take their subject matter from the raw emotions of everyday people. The CD includes the famous “Vesti la giubba” from Mascagni’s Pagliacci – a heartbreaking dramatic tenor showpiece where Canio bitterly reflects that he must play the part of a clown while his heart is breaking; a selection from Leoncavallo’s version of La Bohème; and Romeo’s final aria from Zandonai’s rarely performed Romeo e Giulietta.
