Jonas Kaufmann Cancels Budapest Concert

By Francisco Salazar

Jonas Kaufmann has canceled his upcoming performance at the Mupa Budapest on Jan. 28.

The theater said, “We regret to inform our audience that due to illness Jonas Kaufmann will have to withdraw from his aria evening performance. We are working with the artist’s management to reschedule the concert and the new date is currently under negotiation. Tickets already purchased will remain valid for the new date which will be announced by email, on the website and on the event’s Facebook page.”

The cancelation comes a day after the tenor canceled the final performance of “Aida” at the Wiener Staatsoper. The tenor took to Instagram and said, “It is with sadness that I announce that I will not be able to perform in tonight’s final performance of “Aida” at the Wiener Staatsoper, nor my upcoming concert in Budapest. Although I have done my absolute best to continue, at the advice of my doctors, I need to rest.”

Kaufmann now returns to the stage in February for “Andrea Chénier” in Monte-Carlo.
