Der Fliegende Holländer
The ghostly seafaring Dutchman is only allowed ashore once every seven years to find a woman who will lift his curse by swearing eternal love. He sails into a Norwegian port and finds just the woman: Senta. Will she settle down with dull Erik, her fiancé? Or throw in her lot with the doomed Captain?
Bryn Terfel is the Dutchman, with Wagnerian soprano Rachel Nicholls as Senta, the woman who would give up life itself to free him, and tenor du jour Nicky Spence.
Distinguished Wagnerian conductor Anthony Negus will be in the pit.
