Persona Arts presents German language opera, “The Flying Dutchman”

Wagner The Flying Dutchman (Der fliegende Holländer)

Condemned to roam the seas for having defied God, the Flying Dutchman is cast ashore. Both man and ship can only seek redemption if true love can break the curse. 

RBC alumnus Byron Jackson FRSA leads an all-star cast of some of the UK’s finest Commonwealth opera singers and features the Birmingham Choral Union, a commissioned work by renowned composer Bobbie-Jane Gardner, community youth choruses and the Central England Camerata under the baton of Jack Ridley.

This unique and diverse community production will be staged by the Artistic Director of the Commonwealth Games 2022 ceremony, Iqbal Khan, a formidable talent in the world of opera and theatre.

Sung in German with English surtitles.

Please note that the performances and rehearsals are not suitable for children under 7.
