IRON CURTAIN MAN - The Online Show. The Elvis of the GDR returns!
Last year, the Neuköllner Oper brought a forgotten superstar of the GDR back to the stage. Dean Reed broke the hearts of the audience once again in IRON CURTAIN MAN, as he danced, sang and acted a revue through his life.
But one of the most important questions remained unanswered: How would the Red Cowboy be today?
We present your favorite GDR star Dean Reed as the hero of a unique series of broadcasts. On six evenings, a dazzling Dean from different eras of his career will perform and rehearse his songs live in front of an audience of millions. Along for the ride are friends from his life, as well as new adversaries and commentators.
