Our favorite Jonas brother gets tied to a chair

If you landed here because you thought we were talking about those three twink spawns of Disney, Inc., consider yourself rick-rolled by art on a higher plane. This post is about an actual grown-up — German tenor Jonus Kaufmann as Don José in the 2006 Royal Opera Company production of Carmen in Covent Gardens.
     Mostly Opera said Kaufmann (and Anna Caterina Antonacci) were "shattering as the leads with stage chemistry and acting making this, by far, the best Carmen on DVD."

Credits: Carmen - Anna Caterina Antonacci; Don José - Jonas Kaufmann; Escamillo - Ildebrando D'Arcangelo; Micaela - Norah Amsellem; The Royal Opera Chorus; Chorus Director: Renato Balsadonna; The Orchestra of the Royal Opera House Covent Garden; Conductor: Antonio Pappano

Here's more of Kaufmann:
