Royal Opera House: Der fliegende Hollander ENCORE

Rated NR 140 min. 2015

Wagner's first masterpiece explores the themes of damnation and redemption that would fascinate the composer throughout his career. In this tale of a captain forced to sail the seas for eternity unless released by the faithful love of a good woman, and the lonely girl who longs to save him, Wagner created two unforgettable characters operating near the limits of human emotion. Tim Albery's atmospheric 2009 modern-dress staging provides an ideal platform on which Bryn Terfel's turbulent Dutchman and Adrianne Pieczonka's visionary Senta will explore their passions and struggle to find salvation in a hostile world. Admired for his Wagner interpretations with the CBSO and at Bayreuth, Andris Nelsons returns to steer the orchestra through Wagner's stormy score.
