Every seven years, the Dutchman comes ashore for a chance to break the curse that binds him to the desolate seas. His quest for true love leads him to Senta, a captain’s daughter who has been obsessing over a mystifying portrait of him. When the two meet, the Dutchman is hopeful, but Senta must decide between her arranged marriage and her overpowering love for the Dutchman.
HGO’s first Wagner opera since the four-part Ring cycle, this new production of Der Fliegende Holländer heightens the dramatic elements of the famous legend of a cursed ghost ship and features Melody Moore as Senta, Andrzej Dobber in the title role, Kristinn Sigmundsson as Daland and Eric Cutler as Erik. The performances take place from October 19 until November 2.
