You Mean the World to Me: Jonas Kaufmann, Tenor
Part of: Also at Carnegie Hall
Operetta and popular song were flourishing, and a new medium was making a splash in Germany during the 1920s and ‘30s. Benefiting from the popularity of the new “talkie” format, film producers looked to the leading composers from the worlds of cabaret, operetta, and popular music to write works for the singing actors of the day. Jonas Kaufmann performs many of these selections in an evening named after one such song by operetta star Richard Tauber.
