Wagner's Der Fliegende Hollander
Tonight's Opera on 3 is a production of Wagner's Der Fliegende Holländer recorded at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden. Egils Silins sings the legendary Dutchman, cursed to sail his ghostly ship for eternity and only allowed ashore every seven years. The only way to break the curse is to find a woman who will be faithful to him until death. Anje Kampe sings Senta, who believes she is that woman, despite having promised herself to somebody else. Jeffrey Tate conducts a revival of Tim Albery's 2009 production.
