Opera de Montreal Celebrates Wagner!

Our EC Montreal students are always looking for something cultural to do during their stay.  Visiting La Place des Arts and taking in an opera is a must in Montreal!!

Opéra de Montréal brings a bit of Germany to Montreal with Wagner’s famous Flying Dutchman, on the eve of the 200th anniversary of his birth…

Launching its 2012-13 season on a high note, l’Opera de Montreal brings Richard Wagner’s The Flying Dutchman to the Place des Arts’s Salle Wilfrid-Pelletier, at the epicentre of the city’s cultural scene.

As a guarantee of authenticity, Opéra de Montréal has brought in the lead performers direct from Germany: bass-baritone Thomas Gazheli will take the starring role of the Dutchman, alongside soprano Maida Hundeling as Senta, while her poor sap of a fiancé Erik will be played by tenor Endrick Wottrich.

This is just the first quarter of the opera season, of course – up ahead there’s some Strauss, Dead Man Walking by Heggie and Manon by Massenet… so stay tuned!


Opéra de Montréal presents Wagner’s The Flying Dutchman – the last performance is tonight, November 17.  You can still get tickets!  Don’t miss it!!
