This May, The Flying Dutchman, Wagner’s lively and tuneful song of the sea, sets sail for Seattle. Opera-lovers around the world associate Seattle with productions of the great operas of Richard Wagner, particularly his monumental four-opera Ring cycle. (Only in Seattle have there been as many performances of Wagner’s Die Walküre as Carmen and La bohème!) The company’s tight focus on presenting these challenging masterworks has kept every department operating at the top of their game for decades. Enjoy these memories of great Wagner productions at Seattle Opera.
