While opera may not be everyone’s cup of tea, the audience at the International Opera Awards in London was treated to an impressive showcase of high culture.

German tenor Jonas Kaufmann was the big winner at the awards, scooping two prizes – for best male singer and also the Reader’s award, expressing his gratitude along the way.

Tenor Jonas Kaufmann:

“That was really fantastic, I mean I got my prize already and I was very happy and satisfied and relieved and everything and then by surprise I got another one. I'm not only honored, I mean this is too much. It's probably more than I can carry, I will have to pay overweight for my flight home. But it's definitely worth it, don't worry.”

Other winners on the night included Swedish soprano Nina Stemme, who picked up the Female Singer Award and Britain’s Sir George Christie, who was honored with the Lifetime Achievement award.
