One of the most acclaimed Wagner productions of the postwar period, Kupfer's staging was premiered in 1978 and was performed 36 times until 1985 This electrifying, revolutionary Bayreuth staging of The Flying Dutchman catapulted the German director Harry Kupfer to international fame Kupfer's interpretation presents the entire story as the hallucination of a hypersensitive, hysterical Senta who stands in the very centre of it. The Danish soprano Lisbeth Balslev embodies this re-interpretated Senta with breathtaking intensity, while Simon Estes as the Dutchman and Matti Salminen as Daland form a fascinating supporting cast. This Holländer definitely stands out as one of the best Wagner productions of the postwar era - a must-have for every dedicated Wagnerian
