Jonas Kaufmann is regarded as one of the most impressive tenor voices of this generation and has a huge fan following. He was performing “Nessun dorma” and casually removed his tie and unbuttoned his collar while he was at the La Scala stage
Just as he was on the Turandot aria, he failed to remember the lyrics but in a truly professional way, he brushed it off laughingly and then continued his performance without any interruptions.
Most divas get flustered when they make a mistake during a major performance but not Jonas who took it all in his stride and moved on immediately.
