Sunday at the Library

The second day of the Wagner Weekend started with a showing of a video of the 1985 Bayreuth production of “The Flying Dutchman”. The two main leads were Simon Estes as the Dutchman and Lisbeth Balslev, as Senta. Presentation-wise, the production was quite traditional, with a 19th century setting and costumes and ships that “sailed” into view. Where it was more contemporary was in emphasising the role of Senta, who was present on stage from beginning to end, most of the time clutching a painting of the Dutchman. During the Overture and Act One, before she usually appears for the … Continue reading Sunday at the Library

Saturday of Wagner Weekend

Today in Library@Esplanade, there was a chance to watch a wonderfully sung performance of “The Flying Dutchman”. Catherine Naglestad as Senta and Juha Uusitalo as The Dutchman convinced with their singing in De Nederlandse Opera’s stunning modern setup. This screening was followed by an enlightening and entertaining talk by Natalie Ng on Wagner’s Music and The Flying Dutchman in Popular Culture. Natalie’s focus was on comics and cinema. Did you know that Bugs Bunny in “What’s Opera, Doc?” sang to music from “Die Walkurie”, with Elmer Fudd venturing into Siegfried’s role? Or that Marvel Comics’ “Thor” once featured a story … Continue reading Saturday of Wagner Weekend

A Tale of Two Dalands

The role of Daland is one of four major leads in “The Flying Dutchman”. The seafaring Captain is often portrayed as a pragmatic and materialistic character who barters his daughter, Senta to the Dutchman, for his bride, in exchange for treasures on the Dutchman’s ghostly ship. It’ll be interesting to see how Daland is portrayed in the Singapore-made, Asian-style Flying Dutchman. As good basses seem to be in short supply in both Europe and Asia, the casting of Daland proved a little more challenging than expected. After an extensive search, we are delighted to welcome on board two well-reputed basses … Continue reading A Tale of Two Dalands
