About

The Wagner year 2013 brought something special to the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra's concert schedule. The RCO pulled out all the stops with a full performance of this Wagner opera in concert version.

Busy carving out an impressive career for himself and making his fifth appearance at Bayreuth last summer, Andris Nelsons has certainly earned his spurs as a Wagner specialist. He leads the RCO and a cast of international soloists in 'Der fliegende Holländer', an opera about the captain of an infamous Dutch ghost ship who can be freed only by a woman who consents to marry him.

Cast:
- Kwangchul Youn (Daland)
- Anja Kampe (Senta)
- Christopher Ventris (Erik)
- Jane Henschel (Mary)
- Thomas Russell (Der Steuermann)
- Terje Stensvold (Der Holländer)

"… overwhelming and breathtaking" - ***** Eddie Vetter, Telegraaf

"Anja Kampe and Terje Stensvold were breathtaking… but also Kwangchul Youn and Christopher Ventris gave powerful and nuanced interpretations.... Nelsons brought to the music many hues and shades while whipping up and taming great orchestral and choral waves " - Frits van der Waa, Volkskrant

Recorded live at Concertgebouw, Amsterdam on 24 and 26 May 2013.
