Jonas Kaufmann and Kristine Opolais: "Tu, tu, amore? Tu?"

Clip: Season 42 Episode 15 | 2m 59s

Jonas Kaufmann and Kristine Opolais—both frequent collaborators with conductor Andris Nelsons, Opolais' husband—join Nelsons and the Boston Symphony Orchestra to perform the duet “Tu, tu, amore? Tu?” from Puccini’s opera Manon Lescaut. In an interview, Kaufmann jokes that performing a physically passionate duet on stage with Opolais while her husband conducts is simply part of the opera business.
