WAGNER, R.: Fliegende Holländer (Der) (Opera Plus)

WAGNER: The Flying Dutchman
The complete opera plus bonus introduction CD

This set combines an acclaimed complete recording of Wagner's thoroughly approachable opera The Flying Dutchman, starring Ingrid Haubold, with a fascinating companion CD from the Opera Explained series on Naxos Educational. The Opera Explained CD introduces, in words and music, the plot and background of The Flying Dutchman using the principal themes and arias taken from the complete work. Whether listening to the opera for the first time or discovering more about the history and structure of this masterly work, this is an innovative and easy way to deepen an appreciation of Wagner's genius.

The Flying Dutchman is the perfect place to start an acquaintance with the operas of Richard Wagner. It is short, has a great story - the legend of the Dutch captain doomed to sail forever unless redeemed through love - and the striking score has many pre-echoes of Wagner's later music dramas. It contains wonderful tunes in its arias, ensembles, and big choruses.
