Review from Goldstar Member

Description

Wagner’s Der fliegende Holländer (The Flying Dutchman)

(in German with English titles)

Conductor: José Luis Moscovich

Director: David Ostwald

For centuries, the Flying Dutchman sails the seas, condemned to live until he can find salvation in the love of a truly faithful woman. Senta, a teenage village girl on the Norwegian coast, proves faithful to the death. This is love, betrayal, and redemption Wagner style. Der fliegende Holländer is an early work of genius, and the last of Wagner’s italianate operas.
