Opéra National de Paris – Der Fliegende höllander
For any opera fans, and particularly any Wagner opera fans following this blog, I can tell you that a new production of Wagner’s Flying Dutchman, or “Der Fliegende höllander”, opens on 9th September at the Bastille opera in Paris.
Matti Salminen sings the role of Daland with James Morris as the Dutchman and Adrianna Pieczont as Senta. The conductor is Peter Schneider.
As always with Wagner operas, they they jack the ticket prices up and still manage to sell them all. Ticket prices vary from €140.00 down to €5.00. For anyone who can get a ticket this should be really worth seeing.
