A Ghostly Legend Comes To Shore
The Flying Dutchman
Music by Richard Wagner
Libretto by Richard Wagner
Premiered January 2, 1843, Königliches Hoftheater Dresden
Wagner’s supernatural drama makes landfall with Opera Colorado next winter. The captain of a legendary ghost ship is lost in more ways than one as he is doomed to roam the seas and only come to land for one day every seven years. When the Dutchman is introduced to the idealistic Senta, he begins to wonder if he has found a love strong enough to break his lonely curse.
