The Flying Dutchman is a Wagner opera we can actually do here in Opera San José: many are just too large, too long, and won’t work for the younger singers we frequently have on stage. So Flying Dutchman it is! There are a number of oboe solos, and a LOT of playing for the principal oboe. My mouth is pretty weary by the end!

We open tonight at 8:00 at the California Theater.
