Sicklist: Super-young Berlin stand-in gets the call again

Six months ago Thomas Guggeis, 24, made headlines by jumping in for Christoph von Dohnanyi in Salome, and then landing a big job in Stuttgart.

Now, he has been called back to Berlin to replace Marc Minkowski in a revival of Weber’s Der Freischütz this weekend. Minkowski has suffered a leg injury in a bicycle accident cannot travel.

    Leg injury, really… James DePriest managed it for quite sometime…as does Itzak Perlam

  • SUGGERITORE says:

    Norman, he already HAD the job in Stuttgart when he jumped in for Salome, for the record. He is great fun to work with/for. I prompted the Salome performances.

    Reminds me of the young Carlos Kleiber and his getting pretty good gigs from early in his 20s. In Germany too. Stuttgart was the place where he became a star.
