Preview - The Flying Dutchman
In his youth, Richard Wagner created his fastest moving and perhaps his most effective score, The Flying Dutchman.
As the legend goes, a ship’s captain is cursed to live until he can find someone who will love him until death. On this unique day he meets Senta, who has been obsessed with his legend from childhood. However, in the legend, she must die to free him from eternal life on earth, which has become a living hell. It is a brilliant story with one of the most compelling roles in all of opera. Sung in German with English supertitles.
This one-hour preview is free, and it will take place in the Rehearsal Hall on the third floor of the California Theatre. Moderated by Opera San Jose General Director Larry Hancock, it will include a lecture and performances by OSJ artists.
