Doppelgänger

The world premiere of Doppelganger in New York’s Park Avenue Armory – a staged version of Schubert’s Schwanengesang with Jonas Kaufmann and Helmut Deutsch and directed by Claus Guth – has been enthusiastically received by public and press. Here are some voices:

’Doppelganger’ is awesome experimental theater on a grand scale … There’s really nothing like it in New York right now.”
Theatermania

“a rare treat … the theatrical ingenuity and visceral force was so strong that the audience let out an audible gasp of shock”
New York Times

“Park Avenue Armory once again confirms that its Wade Thompson Drill Hall is the most sensational performance space in New York City with the world premiere of Claus Guth’s bold and breathtaking Doppelganger … Kaufmann is in terrific voice.”
