THE FLYING DUTCHMAN Opens The Dallas Opera Season

The Dallas Opera is extremely proud to present the season opener of the company's grand 2018-2019 "Swept Away" Season: Richard Wagner's haunting nineteenth-century masterpiece, The Flying Dutchman (Der fliegende Holländer), a work not seen on The Dallas Opera stage since January of 1994.

The Flying Dutchman will open on Friday, October 12, 2018 in the Margot and Bill Winspear Opera House at the AT&T Performing Arts Center in the Dallas Arts District.

The Linda and Mitch Hart Season Opening Night Performance has a special curtain time of 8:00 p.m.

This compelling production from Canadian Opera Company in Toronto will be directed by Christopher Alden. The Mrs. Eugene McDermott Music Director Emmanuel Villaume will be at the podium for all four performances-kicking off his sixth season at TDO with his first Wagner performance in Dallas!

A world-class international cast of notable Wagnerians includes American bass-baritone Greer Grimsley as the Dutchman; German-Italian soprano Anja Kampe in her house debut as Senta; American tenor Jay Hunter Morris as Erik; American bass-baritone Mark S. Doss in his TDO debut as Daland; American mezzo-soprano Luretta Bybee as Mary, and Korean-American tenor Andrew Stenson in his company debut as the Steersman.

Subsequent performances of The Flying Dutchman will take place on October 14(m), 17, and 20, 2018, with generous underwriting support provided by Holly and Tom Mayer, Richard and Enika Schulze, and Joanna L. and T. Peter Townsend.
