Few composers capture passion better than Wagner – a composer whose music swirls through the soul, who paints nature in all its beauty and brutality, and who tells fantastical stories.

In this production the conflict between good and bad, light and darkness, is a reflection of a tormented and imprisoned soul whose free spirit has been confiscated. The Dutchman is damned, condemned to sail forever, yet his greatest desire is to be released from the hideous prison of his doomed vessel and to return to a life on land.

Reinterpreted by poet Heinrich Heine, the libretto expresses the tragic nature of the romantic spirit. The opera is full of symbolism: its central theme is redemption through a woman’s love. In young Senta’s pledge of faith, the sea captain recognizes his salvation. For her part, Senta succumbs to a destiny with the nameless spectre.

The critically acclaimed Norwegian Wagner soprano, Elisabeth Teige, and Iain Paterson, internationally renowned Scottish bass-baritone, lead the drama as Senta and the Dutchman.

Director John Ramster and designer Bridget Kimak have a reputation for vivid, heart-stopping productions which truly tell the opera’s story. Expect drama, colour and surprises.
