In Braunschweig theatre ships are being installed and sails spread out – all pieces of set design are being put together so to help the Opera ensemble and Srba Dinic in presenting the new opera premiere – Wagner’s Flying Dutchman.
The story of a cursed seaman who roams the seas and wishes to do penance through love inspired Wagner to write the opera which will move music boundaries. In addition to music and libretto which he always wrote himself, Wagner introduced overlapping leitmotivs which help us understand the opera as a unique entity. Wagner is one of the most important German composers and it is a privilege to listen to his work in a German opera house with a long standing tradition such as Theater Braunschweig. It is pleasure to put all segments of his opera in a unique art piece which will be done by Isabel Osterman by directing it and Srba Dinic through music and artistic experience.
