Lyric Opera of Chicago presents The Flying Dutchman by Richard Wagner, opening September 2023.
The Flying Dutchman is the story of a young woman’s obsession. Senta dreams of the Dutchman, who’s cursed to wander the earth. He comes ashore every seven years, searching for a woman who will be faithful to him until death. When she meets him, Senta’s fate is sealed. This new-to-Chicago production at Lyric Opera of Chicago will bring to life some of the composer’s most magnificent and emotional music, including thrilling, spectacular choruses.
The Flying Dutchman is sung in German with English supertitles and runs 2 hours and 30 minutes without an intermission.
