Prime orchestra was exactly what it should have been---center seats in the best part of the opera house. It was truly a magical evening.

Good opera. Brilliant Staging. I felt as if an edgy Impressionist Painting had come alive!

Description

Join Washington National Opera as The Flying Dutchman storms into the Kennedy Center Opera House. This chilling ghost story, full of thunderous orchestral themes and glorious arias, is the perfect choice for anyone experiencing their first Wagner opera. Easily one of Richard Wagner’s most accessible stories, The Flying Dutchman clocks in at just over two hours. It’s no longer than an evening at the movies!

Sung in German with English supertitles.
