Hans Neuenfels died of CovidNews
The New York Times obituary desk has ascertained the cause of death of the controversial opera director.
Hans Neuenfels, a German director and writer whose provocative, iconoclastic productions made him one of the pioneers of modern operatic stagecraft and the frequent target of audience and critical outrage, died in Berlin on Sunday. He was 80.
The cause was Covid-19, his son, the cinematographer Benedict Neuenfels, said.
No word of this appears in German media.
