Royal Opera House: Der fliegende Hollander ENCORE

Wagner's first masterpiece explores the themes of damnation and redemption that would fascinate the composer throughout his career. In this tale of a captain forced to sail the seas for eternity unless released by the faithful love of a good woman, and the lonely girl who longs to save him, Wagner created two unforgettable characters operating near the limits of human emotion. Tim Albery's atmospheric 2009 modern-dress staging provides an ideal platform on which Bryn Terfel's turbulent Dutchman and Adrianne Pieczonka's visionary Senta will explore their passions and struggle to find salvation in a hostile world. Admired for his Wagner interpretations with the CBSO and at Bayreuth, Andris Nelsons returns to steer the orchestra through Wagner's stormy score.
