Wagner: Der fliegende Holländer (De Nederlandse Opera)
Robert Lloyd (Daland); Catherine Naglestad (Senta); Marco Jentzsch (Erik); Marina Prudenskaja (Mary); Oliver Ringelhahn (Der Steuermann Dalands); Juha Uusitalo (Der Holländer);
Austrian director Martin Kuej's pioneering vision brings a challenging and provoking insight to Wagner's opera of love and redemption, with his singular ability to connect characters and their actions to the score. Martin Zehetsgruber's spacious, multi-layered sets define the settings through which Daland (Robert Lloyd), Senta (Catherine Naglestad), The Dutchman (Juha Uusitalo) and the chorus move to great effect fulfilling the fine conducting of Hartmut Haenchen, who elicits from the orchestra an unmatchable performance of detail and clarity.
"... must give utmost praise to conductor Hartmut Haenchen, who offers a whip-smart account of the score..." (International Record Review)
