Sung in German with English Surtitles

London Lyric Opera is proud to present a concert performance of Der fliegende Holländer by Richard Wagner featuring the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and the Philharmonia Chorus conducted by Lionel Friend. This is a rare opportunity to hear a performance of Richard Wagner's first masterpiece. Conducted by one of the UK's most distinguished Wagnerians.

"In its majestic but lyrical sweep, its text-responsive handling of texture, not to mention its exemplary pacing and structural grasp, Friend's is one of the best-conducted performances of Götterdämmerung to come my way for a long time."
Barry Millington: OPERA - February 2004
