Description

François Girard, whose mystical, blood-drenched vision for Wagner's Parsifal became one of the Met's most intensely visceral highlights in recent seasons, turns to another Wagnerian masterpiece, Der Fliegende Holländer, conducted by Valery Gergiev. For the first time at the Met, Sir Bryn Terfel sings the role of the mysterious Dutchman, condemned to roam the seas for eternity, with Anja Kampe as the devoted Senta, whose love can set him free. In a nod to Senta's obsession with a portrait of the legendary title seafarer, the Met stage is transformed into a colossal oil painting. Franz-Josef Selig portrays Senta's father Daland, Sergey Skorokhodov takes on the role of the huntsman Erik, David Portillo sings the Steersman, and Mihoko Fujimura is Senta's nurse Mary. Der Fliegende Holländer is a co-production with L'Opéra de Québec and Dutch National Opera, Amsterdam.

There is a pre-performance lecture 45 minutes prior to each screening. Please join us in Lumina Theater for guest lecturers.
