DG is proud to present an exciting and exceptional new opera production on DVD and BR: Bryn Terfel stars in Richard Wagner’s Der fliegende Holländer (The Flying Dutchman). This is the first time in the 25 years of Bryn’s work as an opera singer that he has recorded this milestone in Wagner’s work. Classical magazine Oper aktuell acknowledges that you do not want to experience anyone other than Bryn Terfel as the Holländer, now that this production is out Bryn is surrounded by a stellar cast and crew: the head of the Zurich opera Andreas Homoki staged the production, renowned French conductor Alain Altinoglu takes the musical lead, and Matti Salminen – a living legend on the world’s opera stages – personifies Daland, with Anja Kampe as Senta . This exceptional recording was made at the Zurich opera house in January 2013.
