Opera of the Week is muscular, blue-collar Wagner – The Flying Dutchmanmain
Our weekly choice from OperaVision is a Lithuanian production of Flying Dutchman – Der fliegende Holländer –
sung in German with English subtitles, from an open-air production in a Baltic shipbuilding yard.
Klaipeda State Music Theatre goes where no Wagner has gone before. Director Dalius Abaris uses the long summer nights on the Baltic coast and the latest sound technology to bring the story vividly to life. The conductor is Modestas Pitrenas.
