    A sea captain doomed by a curse to an existence of eternal wandering, a yearning heroine desperate to escape her restricting world – set against the uncontrolled violence of the sea. Their passionate encounter is a story of compelling tension and musical intensity. This early masterpiece of Wagner’s, presented in the US premiere of the 1841 critical edition and in honor of his bicentennial, ends the season on a note of high drama.

    The new production is directed by Michael Cavanagh and stars Allison Oakes, Alfred Walker, and Gregory Frank. BLO Music Director David Angus conducts.
