Der Fliegende Holländer

Buy Tickets

Richard Wagner’s first major operatic success, Der Fliegende Holländer is an eerie retelling of the legend of the Flying Dutchman, the supernatural mariner who is doomed to sail the seas for eternity unless a faithful woman can redeem him. Conducting his first Wagner opera with the company, Yannick Nézet-Séguin leads an explosive reading of the tumultuous score. Baritone Michael Volle offers a riveting portrayal in the title role, opposite rising-star soprano Amber Wagner as Senta, the maiden determined to save his soul. A thrilling cast—which also includes AJ Glueckert as the lovelorn Erik, Franz-Josef Selig as the overbearing Daland, and Met favorite Dolora Zajick in the cameo role of Mary—joins the Met Orchestra and Chorus in this unforgettable performance.
