The New Zealand Opera’s new production of The Flying Dutchman opens in October and Wyn Davies, the company’s director of music, says: “What’s so staggering is its newness and the shock of it. “The year is 1839 and out comes the 28-year-old Wagner’s Dutch- man, all his guns blazing. This is theatrical, even cinematic Roman- ticism undiluted, fully formed and foaming.” The hero is the Heathcliff of opera, he says, “a storm-beaten piece of rough”. “And the girl who falls for him does so with a soaring, scorching passion of the kind only opera can supply.” Aidan Lang, NZ Opera’s general director, says: “If you’ve never experienced Wagner before and are curious to, this opera will likely hook you forever.” Award-winning Australians, director Matthew Lutton and designer Zoe Atkinson, are spear- heading the production, together with lighting designer Jon Buswell. The cast of international opera stars includes Welsh baritone Jason Howard, as the Dutchman; New Zealand bass Paul Whelan as Daland; Irish soprano Orla Boylan as Senta; English tenor Peter Auty as Erik; and New Zealanders Shaun Dixon (tenor) and Wendy Doyle (mezzo soprano) as the Steersman and Mary, respectively. They’re accompanied by the Chapman Tripp Opera Chorus and the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra, which Mr Davies will conduct. The opera is a co-production between New Zealand Opera and Opera Queensland. It’s sung in German with English surtitles. The Flying Dutchman will be per- formed at 7.30pm on October 5, 10 and 12, and at 6.30pm on October 8 at the ASB Theatre, Aotea Centre, Central Auckland. For bookings, phone the NZ Opera box offce on 379-4068, or The Edge on 0800-289-842, or online at www.buytickets.co.nz. Tickets cost $49.50-$189.50 with concessions available.
