Vancouver Opera presents The Flying Dutchman at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre for 3 performances running April 29 – May 7.
Based on a European maritime legend, The Flying Dutchman tells the haunting story of a man cursed to wander the seas for eternity, and a woman whose self-sacrifice is his only chance at redemption. This tragic love story is the composer’s first masterpiece.
Having a new interpretation of one of Wagner’s most dynamic works ending our season is very fitting,” said Tom Wright, Vancouver Opera General Director. “This season we have delighted our audiences with compelling productions. The theatre has been filled with returning opera fans and our productions have engaged a new generation of operagoers. The creativity going into this production is sure to entice fans of Wagner and those seeking an operatic adventure. Our creative team, being led by Brian Deedrick, is building a magical and fantastical world through projection, costumes and lighting.”
Single tickets for The Flying Dutchman start at $50 and are available now through the Vancouver Opera box office online or at 604-683-0222.
The Flying Dutchman_ is sung in German with English SURTITLES™ projected above the stage.
