Yekaterinburg Theatre to open season with Wagner's "Flying Dutchman"
Maestro Michael Guttler will conduct the performance, which will be directed by Paul Curarn and artist Gary McCann. Elvira Gaifullina will be principal guest choirmaster, and the light performance will be created by Yevgeny Vinogradov.
"The Flying Dutchman" first premiered on January 2, 1843, at the Semper Oper in Dresden, Germany.
Guttler said the production will use the idea of scenography, using classic scenery so that the ship and waves will be clearly discernible on stage.
The production will be quite unusual, according to Curran, said Wagner opened up a new path for music and opera.
Wagner was inspired to write "The Flying Dutchman" after a stormy sea crossing from Riga, Latvia, to London in July and August of 1839.
