Wayne Tigges singing title role in The Flying Dutchman in Atlanta

Wayne Tigges as the Dutchman
Wayne Tigges, who just scored a huge triumph as Ray Cohn in New York City Opera's production of Péter Eötvös's Angels in America, will be taking on a completely different role at the Atlanta Opera. 

Tigges will be taking on the title role in Richard Wagner's The Flying Dutchman with an all-star cast that includes soprano Melody Moore as Senta,  Jay Hunter Morris as Erik and the booming bass of Kristinn Sigmundsson as Daland (you have to hear it to believe it!). The production will be directed by Atlanta Opera's General and Artistic Director Tomer Zvulun before moving on to Houston and Cincinnati. 

Wayne Tigges sings "Die Frist is um" from Flying Dutchman:

Based on a Norwegian ghost story, The Flying Dutchman tells of the famed ghost ship doomed to wander the seas until its captain can find a wife. The ghost captain finds his love in a sailor's daughter, Senta, who is trapped in an arranged marriage, but finds escape from her mundane life through her obsession with the Dutchman. When the ghost ship makes port in her hometown, Senta is confronted with the consequences of her love.

Performances are on November 4, 7, 10 and 12 and tickets are available online.
