Opera North - The Flying Dutchman

Opera North - The Flying Dutchman

Although not his first opera, Wagner regarded The Flying Dutchman as the true beginning of his artistic voyage, and it is in many ways the ideal introduction to his musical universe.

From the bracing horn calls that set the propulsive drama in motion to the resplendent final moments of transfiguration, you’ll be swept away by this thrilling, tempestuous music drama in a new production directed by Annabel Arden and designed by Joanna Parker (Andrea Chénier, Turandot, Aida).

At sea, the captain of a ship is cursed along with his crew to wander the ocean until Judgement Day.

On land, a woman dreams of escape from a world where vision and compassion are reduced to shabby deals. She is obsessed with the legend of the Flying Dutchman, whose soul only love can redeem from the purgatory of his ceaseless voyaging. Will Senta and the Dutchman bring each other salvation or catastrophe?
