The Mariinsky (Kirov Ballet) Theatre
er Fliegende Hollander (The Flying Dutchman)

The story of the Flying Dutchman probably goes back to the ancient seaman tale of the phantom ship that goes back to the 16th century, and Heine?s novella written on that plot.
1. During a storm Daland, a Norwegian seaman, meets the Flying Dutchman on a rocky island. The Flying Dutchman asks him for a shelter. Only love can give him peace. Daland decides to give his daughter to the Dutchman. The love and the oath of fidelity that Senta, the daughter of the Norwegian seaman gives before she dies, cleanses the sins of the Dutchman. The phantom ship sinks and the souls of the lovers are reunited after death.

2. Der Fliegende Hollunder is a stormy and emotional opera in which a man condemned to live and sail the oceans must find a woman to love him faithfully. Senta gives herself completely, but through a misunderstanding the Dutchman flees causing Senta to throw herself into the ocean and to her death.
Though the plot sounds melodramatic, the music fleshes out each character completely and transforms Senta's suicide from something possibly grotesque into a beautiful act of devotion and redemption.
