The Flying Dutchman by Richard Wagner

Sung in German


The legend of the ghostly ship condemned to wander the oceans forever has fascinated opera lovers – and more recently, movie lovers – for hundreds of years. An enthralling score, illuminated by striking stage imagery, powers a thrilling journey into an unsettling, mythic world where a tormented spirit seeks true love as his redemption.
