Wagner The Flying Dutchman 150’

There is no interval in this concert.

A phantom ship, a satanic curse, and a love more powerful than death itself: Richard Wagner’s The Flying Dutchman might just be the ultimate Romantic opera.

For Wagner novices, it’s an ideal place to start; for those who’ve followed Opera North’s triumphant concert Ring Cycle, this concert staging under Richard Farnes – with visuals by Peter Mumford – is an unmissable encore.

Concert performance sung in German with English surtitles. Please note surtitles may not be visible from every seat. Please check when booking.      www.THSH.co.uk
