Tue, 2 June - 1:00 PM

The great bass-baritone Sir Bryn Terfel plays the title role of the cursed sea captain, doomed to sail the open ocean for eternity.

Valery Gergiev conducts a new production of Richard Wagner’s Der Fliegende Holländer by François Girard, whose visionary 2013 take on Parsifal set the recent Met standard for Wagner stagings. With sweeping sets by John Macfarlane, Girard’s new production turns the Met stage into a rich, layered tableau reminiscent of a vast oil painting. The gifted German soprano Anja Kampe, in her Met debut, is the devoted Senta, whose selfless love is what the Dutchman seeks, with bass Franz-Josef Selig as her father, Daland, and tenor Sergey Skorokhodov as her deserted former lover, Erik.


A co-production of the Metropolitan Opera; L’Opéra de Québec; and Dutch National Opera, Amsterdam.

The Flying Dutchman, or Der Fliegende Holländer, is sung in German with English subtitles.

A HD Live screening from the Metropolitan Opera House, New York.
