On Wednesday the 29th of February at 8pm, Jonas Kaufmann and Maestro Jochen Rieder will be performing with the Qatar Philharmonic Orchestra at the Opera House, Building 16, Katara.

Dr Emad Sultan, Cultural Affairs Director said, ‘We are bringing the best of music and cultures under one roof and are proud to host Jonas Kaufmann and Maestro Rieder in our world class facilities.’

Internationally recognised, Jonas Kaufmann is a German operatic tenor who has received high acclaim in the world’s greatest opera houses. He has a wide repertoire of periods, styles and languages and is most famous for his roles in Tosca and Carmen.

German conductor Jochen Rieder started his career at the Badisches Staatsheater in Karlsruhe and has since collaborated with the Theatre du Chatelet and the Opera National in Paris.
