Mr. Kunde has appeared reg­u­larly and with great suc­cess in the world's most notable venues, includ­ing New York's Met­ro­pol­i­tan Opera, City Opera and Carnegie Hall, Chicago, San Fran­cisco, Dal­las, Hous­ton, Paris' Bastille, Chatelet, Opera Comique, The­atre du Champs Ely­see and Salle Pleyel, Amsterdam's Con­cert­ge­bouw, Berlin, Munich, Dres­den, Buenos Aires, Milan, Rome, Naples, The Rossini Opera Fes­ti­val in Pesaro, Italy, Madrid, Las Pal­mas, Vienna, Zurich, Geneva, Athens, Tokyo, Syd­ney and many others.

Mr. Kunde has earned wide­spread acclaim for his per­for­mances of the most demand­ing tenor roles of the French and Ital­ian bel canto operas, includ­ing, most notably: Arnold of Rossini's Guil­laume Tell; Julian in Charpentier's Louise; Des Grieux of Massenet's Manon; Nadir of Bizet's Les Pecheurs des Per­les; Elvino in Bellini's La Son­nam­bula; Fer­nando in Donizetti's La Favorita; the title roles in both Gounod's Faust and Romeo in his Romeo et Juli­ette, Rodrigo in Rossini's La Donna del Lago, Arturo of Bellini's I Puri­tani, Pirro in Rossini's Ermione, and the title role of Rossini's Otello.
Her­alded as a bel canto author­ity, Kunde can now claim the music of Berlioz as his ter­ri­tory as well. Shat­ter­ing old ideas of the heldentenor's secure place in this French genre, Kunde has con­vinc­ingly brought his bel canto ele­gance to this music. Under the direc­tion of John Nel­son, Kunde per­formed and recorded Ben­evenuto Cellini in con­cert with the Orches­tra Radio France (Vir­gin Clas­sics).
And at Paris' Theâtre du Chatelet, Kunde appeared in the chal­leng­ing role of Aeneas, for a land­mark stag­ing of Berlioz' Les Troyens under the baton of Mae­stro John Eliot Gar­diner.
Mr. Kunde began the 2010-2011 sea­son as Donizetti's Poli­uto for the Donizetti Fes­ti­val in the composer's birth­place of Berg­amo, Italy then as Arnold in Rossini's Guil­laume Tell in La Coruna, Spain.
