The Royal Danish Theater Presents:

 

 

The Royal Danish Theatre’s Wagner singers are highly sought-after in the opera houses of the world.

Now you can experience several of them in Wagner’s early ghost opera Der Fliegende Holländer, including the internationally renowned Danish baritone Johan Reuter in the title role as the Dutchman and Wagner soprano Iréne Theorin, who is back at the Royal Danish Theatre to perform the role of Senta.

Der Fliegende Holländer is the story of Senta, who as a child is told the tale of the Flying Dutchman’s tragic destiny. As an adult she is obsessed with the love-hungry ghost captain, and her longing becomes so strong that he steps into her reality – with disastrous consequences. 

The stage direction for Der Fliegende Holländer was crafted by the famed English actor and director Jonathan Kent, who brings focus to the little girl’s obsession in a colourful universe filled with pirate ships and adventures, in which fantasy and reality meld together as one.

Der Fliegende Holländer is conducted by the Royal Danish Theatre’s principal conductor Michael Boder, and the plentiful choral parts provide a rich opportunity to experience the Royal Danish Opera Chorus hit their choral stride with their own unique Wagner sound.

Der Fliegende Holländer is performed in German with Danish supertitles.
