Kaufknabe

A number of the cher public have asked for more photos of hunkalicious Jonas Kaufmann, with a several of you specifially requesting a image without the tenor’s accustomed facial stubble. Well, one of La Cieca’s dear readers has obliged by sending a snapshot of Kaufmann before he stopped shaving, or possibly before he even started shaving.

The reader recalls performing with Der Junge Jonas circa 1997 when he “still sang Rossini and The Student Prince.” A particularly vivid memory is of “Jonas in biker spandex for Proben in Heidelberg!” (The image of Mr. Kauffman’s dinner companion has been obscured for reasons of privacy.)

And now here’s some contemporary video of the unstubbled Kaufmann in action, singing The Student Prince.
