We present a documentary on Jan Philipp Gloger's staging of The Flying Dutchman at the Bayreuth Festival Theatre in 2013. Go behind the scenes of Wagner's superb opera. The opera itself is also available on medici.tv.
Take a look backstage at this production. Witness the artists' final preparations and exchanges just before going on stage. Christian Thielemann, at the head of Das Orchester der Bayreuther Festspiele, shares some of the emotions he goes through as he conducts Wagner's work. It is then the turn of the chorus master Eberhard Friedrich to give us his take on this performance of The Flying Dutchman. The two also explain how their visions coincide, resulting in the final production. The documentary ends with the thoughts of the director, Jan Philipp Gloger, on the legend of The Flying Dutchman.
