The Wortham Theater Center, Brown Stage

Houston Grand Opera (HGO) is proud to announce An Evening with Jonas Kaufmann, a special, one-night event with international tenor Jonas Kaufmann on October 6, 2021, at the Wortham Theater Center. Kaufmann’s highly anticipated HGO debut, and first-ever Houston performance, is the chance of a lifetime for opera lovers.

Hailed as “the world’s greatest tenor” by The Telegraph, Jonas Kaufmann is known for his voice which excels in a large variety of repertoire and has received much recognition for his performance of French, German, and Italian roles. Standout roles include Don José, Werther, Don Carlo, Otello, Andrea Chénier, Siegmund, Cavaradossi, Lohengrin, Parsifal, and Florestan, which he has performed at houses around the world. The acclaimed artist is in high demand for his solo recitals and concerts.

The concert in the Brown Theater will feature a broad selection of arias and excerpts from the heroic tenor repertoire, including a generous sampling of the Wagnerian roles for which he has become famous. HGO Artistic and Music Director Patrick Summers conducts the HGO Orchestra during this extraordinary evening.

Important 2021-22 Season Updates

The safety of our staff, cast, technicians, and audiences remains HGO’s first consideration as we plan our upcoming season. While there will be some changes, including the need for flexibility in seating options, for the Fall Repertoire, we hope to return to normalcy—or close to it—by the holidays.   

We are grateful to have wonderful partners in Houston Methodist, who have graciously agreed to guide us as we establish safety protocols. In addition, we have consulted prominent physicians and are working in accordance with world health provider recommendations. The measures HGO is implementing for live performances could include temperature checks before entering the building; a mask requirement that will be in effect throughout the building, including in seats; social distancing; and increased hand sanitation stations.
