A ghostly tale as powerful and mysterious as the sea itself – A tormented ship’s captain is condemned to endlessly sail the seas for eternity, only to be released of his curse by the true love of one woman.
Bass-baritone Wayne Tigges (Olin Blitch in Susannah, 2012) returns as the tormented Dutchman, opposite British soprano Alwyn Mellor making her Florentine debut as Senta. Florentine favorite bass Peter Volpe (Don Giovanni in Don Giovanni, 2006; Timur in Turandot, 2011; and Zuniga in Carmen, 2012) returns as Senta’s father, Daland. Danish tenor David Danholt makes his debut as Erik, and mezzo-soprano Jenni Bank (Marcellina in The Marriage of Figaro, 2013) sings Mary. Maestro Joseph Rescigno (conducting for Florentine productions dating back to 1981) conducts the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra in this new production directed by Paula Suozzi with sets and lighting designed by Noele Stollmack.
