DER FLIEGENDE HOLLANDER - Royal Opera House

Wagner’s first masterpiece DER FLIEGENDE HOLLANDER 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.
