• Listen to the Operavore stream

Perhaps Wagner's most straightforward and approachable opera, The Flying Dutchman is presented here in a version which, unlike the one-act original, comes with an intermission in a production from the historic Real Teatro di San Carlo in Naples, Italy, one of the world's oldest opera houses with a history dating as far back as the 17th century.

The stars are bass-baritone Juha Uusitalo in the title role, with soprano Elisabete Matos as Senta, the woman who frees the Dutchman from his eternal journey, in a production led by conductor Stefan Anton Reck.
