Der flieegende olländer - Concert
With a concert version of Richard Wagner’s magnificent Der fliegende Holländer we celebrate fifteen years of The Göteborg Opera. On stage great Scandinavian singers converge with our big orchestra and augmented chorus under the direction of guest conductor Olaf Henzold, well known at The Göteborg Opera from his Strauss successes Der Rosenkavalier, Die Frau ohne Schatten and Arabella.
Being at last able to offer the audience a full-scale Wagner opera was one of the main ambitions when the future Göteborg Opera was being planned. It was therefore with undeniable pride that we presented our first Wagner production, Der fliegende Holländer, during the very first season.
