Der Fliegende Holländer

  • Longborough Festival Opera Longborough Moreton-in-Marsh Gloucestershire GL56 0QF (map)

The captain of a ghostly ship, condemned to sail the sea forever, comes ashore in search of his only chance of redemption: true love. 

Inspired by the legend of the Flying Dutchman and the composer’s experiences of a particularly rough sea crossing, Der fliegende Holländer was Wagner’s first step from opera to music drama – with music that seethes and rages like a terrific storm.

Steven Swindells - Chorus
