The Metropolitan Opera Live 19/20: Der Fliegende Hollander
New York comes to WGC.
Saturday nights will never be the same again!
Starring: Anja Kampe, Franz-Josef Selig
Conductor: Valery Gergiev
Approx running time: 2 hours 19 minutes
Der Fliegende Holländer is the earliest of Wagner’s operatic creations to remain in the repertory. The two lead roles represent archetypes to which the composer would return, in one form or another, in most of his later works: the “otherworldly stranger” and the woman who sacrifices herself for his salvation. The work’s unearthly ambience is impressive but only one aspect of it: Both the world of nature and of the supernatural are magnificently evoked in the score.
