Jonas Kaufmann made his highly acclaimed debut as Bacchus in this 2012 Salzburg Festival production of Ariadne auf Naxos, leading a cast including Emily Magee and Elena Mosuc, with Daniel Harding conducting. Director Sven-Erich Bechtholf's staging is enriched with elements of theater, comedy and dance.
"Jonas Kaufmann was spectacular as Bacchus, growing improbably stronger as he progressed. Emily Magee was scarcely less impressive in the demanding role of Ariadne." - New York Times
