Vancouver Opera presents The Flying Dutchman

Based on a European maritime legend, Wagner's The Flying Dutchman tells the haunting story of a sailor and his daughter who encounter a ghost during a storm on the sea. The Dutchman, who has been condemned to wander for eternity, is searching for a bride to finally bring him peace. This tragic tale of love and sacrifice is the composer’s first masterpiece and features magnificent orchestration of Wagnerian proportions. Vancouver based projection designer Sean Nieuwenhuis will showcase the Queen Elizabeth Theatre’s stunning projection capabilities and bring the turbulent sea to life. This will be a new production for Vancouver Opera.
