Wagner
Der Fliegende Holländer

This broadcast features two great singing actors of the 20th century at the height of their powers and in roles that will be forever associated with them. George London is the tormented Flying Dutchman of legend, condemned to sail the seas unless he can find a woman who will remain true to him until her death. Leonie Rysanek is Senta, the innocently obsessed young girl who kills herself to save him. Together, they bring Wagner’s early opera to thrilling life.
