Kaufmann admits lip synching at Champions League

(Associated Press) – Jonas Kaufmann says he lip synched his performance of the Champions League theme before last weekend’s final in Munich.

The tenor posted a statement Thursday on his Facebook page, explaining why he appeared at Allianz Arena on Saturday following cancellations at New York’s Metropolitan Opera on April 28 and May 7 because of illness.

“To avoid any further misunderstandings: I did not sing, but rather lip-synched to a prerecorded tape,’’ Kaufmann wrote. “Had the promoters insisted on my singing live there, of course I would have cancelled that appearance as well. At the CLF I just had to stand there and mime for five minutes.’’
