RICHARD WAGNER: The Flying Dutchman
(Romantic Opera in Three Scenes)
Bayreuther Festspielhaus, 28 August 2015
In the final tableau, it looks as if Daland and the others have decided to make memorial statues of Senta and the Dutchman....that was the point of the packaging. I thought it was rather an interesting idea....they have achieved what they wanted out of life (i.e, death!!) but people will always remember them.
Such a splendid achievement by the Bayreuth team. Now I have to start saving up for next year!!!
