Tim Albery’s Olivier-nominated production of Wagner’s famous opera The Flying Dutchman at the Royal Opera House will be relayed to the big screen at Diss Corn Hall at the start of next month.
Featuring the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House and the Royal Opera Chorus, the production, otherwise known as Der Fliegende Hollander, tells of the intense and dangerous attraction between the Dutchman, a man doomed to sail the seas for eternity, and Senta, sung by Canadian soprano Adrianne Pieczonka, the woman whose faithful love could redeem him.
The stark setting of the isolated Baltic community and dark themes of the opera are captured by Michael Levine’s atmospheric set designs, including a huge rolling metal hull that looms over the characters representing the oppressive phantom ship.
The screening takes place on Sunday, March 1 at 2pm. Tickets are £15, or £12.50 for under-18s - for more info, call 01379 652241 or visit www.disscornhall.co.uk
