Der fliegende Holländer
Jan 26 - Feb 6
Wagner almost experienced a shipwreck, which inspired him to write this opera early in his career based on a modern English legend about a Dutch ship captain who is doomed to sail the oceans forever as punishment for his blasphemy. The story tells how the love of the young maiden, Senta, saves the cursed Dutch captain. Salvation through love and self-sacrifice became a common theme in all of WAGNER’s works thereafter. Matthias von STEGMANN’s production was first presented in 2007, staged again in 2012 and 2015, then here again for the fourth time.
Renowned conductor James Conlon makes his NNTT debut. The title role is taken on by leading Wagner singer Egils Silins, who is joined on stage by the noteworthy young singers including Martina Welschenbach and Ladislav Elgr.
Sung in German with English and Japanese subtitles
