Such a wonderful performance of The Flying Dutchman the cast told 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 ended with a standing ovation from a packed house.

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 that went into this production enticed fans of Wagner and those seeking an operatic adventure.

Watch for details for the 2023-2024 season and the exciting productions they have lined up.
