Production: Nina Blum

First performance: December 16, 2023


Das verfluchte Geisterschiff based on Richard Wagners’s opera The Flying Dutchman is the new children’s opera that follows Die Entführung ins Zauberreich. Another concept by director Nina Blum takes the audience to three different locations within the Vienna State Opera, to discover the story around the main protagonist, the 16-year-old Senta, and her best friend, the rat. The audience is drawn into the action and accompanied by the stage orchestra to help saving Senta’s friend Erik from the danger of the cursed captain. Well-known Wagner arias are enriched by the compositions of Gerald Resch and embedded in a new story by librettist Margit Mezgolich. Das verfluchte Geisterschiff is an interactive children’s opera for all adventure seekers who share the fascination of pirates and ghosts and the power of friendship.
