The Flying Dutchman
Der fliegende Holländer
A recording from the Vienna State Opera, Vienna 2003
This opera, which is generally considered to be Richard Wagner's most accessible work, has had an enduring resonance even beyond the circle of die-hard Wagner fans for over 150 years. The spooky legend of the seafarer who is damned to travel the oceans of the world eternally, and a range of musical highlights such as the «Sailor's Song», have ensured that the work has enjoyed lasting, unbroken popularity.
