Der Fliegende Holländer - Feuer und Eis
It seems the «Flying Dutchman», the mysterious seafarer from Richard Wagner's opera, has found someone worthy to carry on his legacy. Real-life Dutchman and modern-day adventurer Henk de Velde who has already circumnavigated the globe solo in his sailboat five times.
In a modern approach to this extraordinary historical material this opera documentary weaves together de Velde's adventures on the icy seas and Christine Mielitz's production of «The Flying Dutchman» at the Vienna State Opera.
