Richard Wagner's 'The Flying Dutchman' by RWAS and OperaViva - 23 to 30 Oct 2016


Melodious and enjoyable, this is the most accessible of Richard Wagner's operas and resonates with everyone through its themes of ships, ghosts and wish fulfilment. The Dutchman was cursed to sail the seas for eternity, and only a woman's love could set him free.

Don't miss an outstanding opportunity to experience the joy of opera.

An innovative staging of Wagner’s early masterpiece developed by two of Singapore’s leading theatre practitioners, the production sets the story in a timeless Southeast Asian context. The opera will be visually striking and theatrically engaging while presenting the fully-staged work with prize-winning soloists and full size chorus and orchestra.
