Cape Town - Matthew Wild - director of Cape Town Opera's production of Der fliegende Holländer - promises “a night that is absolutely unforgettable.”
A highlight of this production is that it affords audience members the unique opportunity of hearing two South African born singers who have established successful careers in Europe.
Jaco Venter and Johanni van Oostrum return to South Africa after long absences to sing the lead roles of the Dutchman and Senta.
Der fliegende Holländer is about the myth of a cursed sea captain and his ghostly ship coming home to the Cape of Good Hope.
