A haunting love story.

Every seven years, the Dutchman comes ashore for a chance to break the curse that binds him to the desolate seas. His quest for true love leads him to Senta, a captain's daughter who has been obsessing over a mystifying portrait of him. When the two meet, the Dutchman is hopeful, but Senta must decide between her arranged marriage and her overpowering love for the Dutchman.

HGO's first Wagner opera since the four-part Ring cycle, this new production of The Flying Dutchman heightens the dramatic elements of the famous legend of a cursed ghost ship and features Andrzej Dobber in the title role.

Sung in German with projected English translation Appropriate for all ages | 2 hours and 20 minutes, no intermission
