Restlessly wandering the oceans, being able to go ashore only once in seven years, hoping to find a wife who is faithful to death, to be disappointed again and again - that is the fate of the Flying Dutchman already a curse pursued for a long time. The encounter with the Norwegian captain Daland and his daughter Senta, but draws new strength.

Out of a romantic spirit, the young Richard Wagner has shaped the old saga of the Flying Dutchman into an opera, with bold sounds and an almost boundless force. Dark and mysterious comes this legend, whose atmosphere Wagner captured in his astonishing score so succinctly. In the orchestra he unleashes the forces of nature, in the choirs he also lets folkloric sounds echo, in the solo scenes, duets and ensembles he brings in a high level of expressivity. Dream and reality blur into each other, what imaginary and what reality is, one can hardly keep apart. Since the Dresden premiere in 1843, the "Flying Dutchman" has sailed the opera stages of the world, and he has often anchored himself in Berlin in particular.

The staging of Philipp Stölzl shows Wagner's work as a colorful pirate story as well as a fantastic-adventurous soul journey, with some surprising twists.
