Wagner took his inspiration for this masterpiece from Heine’s novel, ‘The Memoirs of Herr von Schnabelewopski’. In this three-act romantic opera, he tells the story of a Dutch sea captain who becomes a roaming phantom looking for the girl who could save him from damnation. Directed by the Blankenship Sisters, water plays a unique part in this production while the characters are highly developed. Presented with thanks to Rennes Opera.
