The Flying Dutchman

presented by Cincinnati Opera

Once every seven years, the Dutchman comes ashore. Doomed to sail the seas on a ghost ship for eternity, he searches for the only key to his release—true love. Senta, a sailor’s daughter, is fascinated with his legend. When intrigue turns to obsession, she’s willing to risk everything to be the one who frees him from never-ending torment. 

For the first time in over 20 years, Wagner’s thrilling take on an eerie nautical legend returns to the Music Hall stage. The old folktale gets a new twist with stunning visual projections that “vividly bring to life a contemporary vision of Wagner’s mythical story” (Atlanta Journal-Constitution). Last seen at Cincinnati Opera as the title character in Turandot, soprano Marcy Stonikas leads the cast as Senta with a voice of “power, grace, and effortless fluidity” (Washington Times). Canadian bass-baritone Nathan Berg, “a brilliant actor” with a “palpable stage presence” (Financial Times), sings the title role in his Cincinnati debut.
