Wagner: The Flying Dutchman 135'
In the teeth of the storm, a sea captain shakes his fist at the devil - and is cursed to roam the seas until doomsday. Only love can save him, but in a small Norwegian village, a young girl has started to dream of a pale stranger… The Flying Dutchman was Wagner’s breakthrough hit, and with its infectiously hummable tunes, it’s the ideal Wagner opera for first-timers. But with Andris Nelsons giving his all to the composer he loves more than any other, in his 200th anniversary year this spectacular concert performance should be unmissable for the aficionados, too.
There will be one interval of 20 minutes between acts one and two.
£10, £15, £21, £26, £32, £37, £42, £49, £55
