MET Live in HD: DER FLIEGENDE HOLLANDER
Sunday, April 5, 2pm | Performing Arts Center SLOBuy Tickets
Every seven years, der Fliegende Holländer (Flying Dutchman), who is condemned to roam the sea for having defied God, is cast ashore and can seek redemption. Only the love of a faithful woman willing to sacrifice her life for him can release him from his curse.
Valery Gergiev conducts a new production by François Girard. 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.
Sung in Italian with English, German, Spanish, and Italian subtitles.
ESTIMATED RUN TIME: 2 HRS 19 MINS
Sponsored by CF Buetow, in memory of Charlotte Buetow
