The Flying Dutchman by Richard Wagner
In Wagner's first masterpiece, a ship's captain is condemned to endlessly travel the seas in search of true love. The "masterful" Patrick Summers (Houston Chronicle) conducts a cast of outstanding Wagnerians led by Greer Grimsley, who thrilled San Francisco Opera audiences as "a thunderous and dramatically compelling Jokanaan" in 2009's Salome (San Francisco Chronicle). Making her San Francisco Opera debut as Senta is Lise Lindstrom, called "a fast-rising star of the dramatic soprano repertory and absolutely one to watch" (The Independent), when she appeared as Turandot at the Royal Opera House.
Presented in celebration of the Wagner bicentennial year.
